I’ve always hated the idea of a gym and knew it wasn’t for me so I bought a dog and started walking her for miles in the beautiful countryside on my doorstep.
This proved to be better than not moving at all but I was never out of breath as said dog stops very frequently to sniff.
I was inspired by friends on social media who post about C25K and Parkrun so I downloaded the app.
I’m now on week 8 of C25K and feel much, much fitter - plus the dog still gets walked but that’s on top of my running.
Completing week 9 is now in sight and I am looking for support now and once I’ve finished so I can get into a solid habit of running.
