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.
