The reason I started C25K is simple, I started because of my dad!
Just over a year ago our families world was totally turned upside down. My dad, at 57 years old, was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, MND for short. I’ll be honest at first I didn’t realise the full implications of my dads diagnosis, I didn’t realise it was a terminal disease. When I did it hit me hard. I ended up off work for 3months as I just couldn’t cope. I never realised but I was deeply depressed.
Fast forward the clock to now & im doing really good mainly because to cope I realised I need to keep myself busy. In order to do that & keep focused my sister & myself have signed up to walk The Great Wall of China next September in aid of MND Scotland who have been a fantastic support to our family. We have to raise £4000 each & im hoping we’ll smash it.
This is where C25K comes in, it’s helping build my fitness & stamina to be able to take on walking the Wall for a week. It’s really helping build my fitness levels & im enjoying it! It’s also helping me keep my focus in a positive state of mind even with my dads depreciating health.
Anyway I just thought I’d share my story with you all, roll on tomorrow morning for W6R2 🏃🏽♀️💨
