Hello everybody ! After some time lurking here, I thought I'd join as I've completed week 2 yesterday and probably could use some support and motivation as I'm getting closer to time runs in minutes rather than in seconds.
I started c25k mostly because I'm helplessly watching loved ones who struggle more and more in their older days after having been in bad shape most of their lives. It's heartbreaking and that's not something I'm looking forward to, but my own lifestyle has been very sedentary. I've also realized I really want to be fit enough to help my parents and my (10 years older) husband when the time comes.
Until now I've had a brief struggle with knee pain (using the husband's old battered shoes wasn't my best idea, brand new trainers seem to have dealt with it) but I find this running business oddly enjoyable, mostly because I discovered I rather like getting out early before work and enjoying the woods (squirrels ! deer !) and the sunrise skies.
I'm actually using another app than the NHS one, as I couldn't download it from where I live (Switzerland), so I hope that's OK. I hope my English is OK as well as it's not my native language !
