W3 run 2 πŸ‘πŸ»

Having hung up my running shoes 25 years ago as family life got in the way, I never thought I would ever put them back on my feet, here I am at 50 years old, remembering how I enjoyed it and i am now pounding the pavements again. I was slow to start off, and had a moment after week one where I thought I was mad and too old to start running again but I soon shook that off. Bring it on W3 and good luck to all my fellow C25K friends πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜€

Well done, of course, you are not too old at 52 to start running I am 72 and for the first time in my life ran for 20 minutes a few weeks ago as part of C25K, that was W5R3.

Well done πŸ‘πŸ» keep up the good work.

I’ve just done W3R2 as well and so glad I’m doing this. I’m a little younger than you but still feeling it in my knees and shins.

Knees not so bad, but yes I feel it in my shins, if you enjoy it, don't stop πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»
