Hey everyone. I find starting C25K a bit daunting so hopefully I can get some advice on here from those of you that have started.
To paint a picture of my health, I am 21 and very overweight. I kind of gave up looking after myself in my teens and haven't done any exercise since then. I have been smoking and drinking heavily as well since I turned 18 and this has all started to catch up with me. I enjoy my job but it's very sedentary so I don't get any exercise day to day. It's a bit sad really that things have gotten this bad.
Being such a young age I've come to the realisation that I need to make some changes, cutting down on drinking, quitting smoking (by moving to a vape for now) and starting C25K. At the moment I'm a bit embarrassed to go out running during the day when people can see me, I did my first run on Monday morning at 3am after I finished my shift at work.
The first run went okay but obviously took its toll on some of my muscles as they ache a little bit now, probably because some of them haven't been used properly in years!
Run 2 comes tonight...
