If a work colleague hadn't mentioned C25K I would not be here today having smashed my second 14lb weight loss goals!
True I had to adapt it to suit my needs. I enjoyed it so much but got shin splints and a dodgy knee injury after just week one! So I did it just walking as fast as I could and the lbs have been dropping off at a steady 2lb a week. Occasionally more!
As I have got fitter and more stamina I managed to add in the runs and now I can't believe how far I can go before having to fast walk until ready to run again!
I love the feeling in my muscles when I stretch after a run and in the morning I wake up looking forward to getting my walk/run in after work. My legs crave it! Lol
In the last month I have lost two inches off my hips, waist and bust. (I didn't measure before that)
After Xmas I am going to ask work for a smaller size uniform! For the first time since I started there 3 years ago!
I may not be following C25K exactly to the letter but it paved the way to getting me healthier and fitter and actually enjoying exercise for the first time ever! I now also do a 15 mins fat burn aerobics routine daily and a hour swim once a week. C25K has turned me into a fitness freak lol
I've still got a long way to go (another 56lbs or 4 stone to lose to be a healthy BMI) but for the first time in my life I can see it is possible and totally achievable!
