Never too old

Hi Everyone, never posted before but so chuffed with myself.

I'm 67 and now on week 7 of the Couch to 5k. I never thought it was possible and although fairly fit I have never liked the idea of running but decided to give it a go after my daughter encouraged me to try. I have never used a podcast or used my earphones on my phone so everything was all very new! I set off on week 1 very early in the morning and although I had a few problems with the podcast I wouldn't be beaten so I carried on and here I am on week 7 and now also playing music from Spotify! its a whole new world but I love it.

Great to hear. Well done 👍 Hope I’ll still be doing this at 67. Fantastic 😀😀🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️

So very well done.

Keep enjoying this gift to yourself and believe in your amazing forever young piece of kit.

Your right. Never too late. All is better than the couch.

Keep smiling.
