I used to see people out running in dark, damp hours of the early morning and I used to think "I wish I could do that, I wish I had that level of commitment".
And the truth is that I've tried a few times to start running, but always under my own methods - and I made so many mistakes! Didn't warm up. Didn't do any strengthening or flexibility exercises. Didn't worry myself about careful pacing. Didn't cool down. Etc., etc., etc. The result of this was after I'd done three runs my middle-aged body started, unsurprising, to fall to bits (achilles, calves, etc.)
I eventually woke up to the fact that C25K might actually be a good idea. I've followed it, to the letter, and today completed W9R3. It's been a great journey!
Now, what do I do next …???
