Hello! To introduce myself, I did Couch to 5K in Summer 2015 and kept running until late 2017 when I did the Great South Run and have only run a handful of times since (I think only two or three times?!).
I got engaged a couple of weeks after the GSR and in Autumn 2018 I got married so a lot of my focus was on my wedding last year! To be honest I think I burnt myself out a bit with running in 2017 so I needed a break. I have had far too much of a break now though, haha! And no other exercise to speak of... And lately (well, for months, actually) I've been seeing people jogging on the pavements as I drive past and thinking "Hmm... I wish that was me..." Definitely feeling the call back to running!
So I've set all my stuff up to do W1R1 tomorrow, Garmin is charging etc. Making this post to commit to do it (I should really go to bed, it's 00:30...) Just downloaded the new C25K app which wasn't around when I first did it. Happy to discover I can play my own music with Laura this time with it. I want to be careful of my knees, and also do some strengthening exercises/other general fitness things as I only ever ran before and I'm not very strong in my core and my glutes/legs. Not sure if I'm going to do the full programme again (I'd like to); my only real hesitation is daylight hours at the moment, I don't like running in the dark as I don't feel safe, so I might have to stick to weekends until it's daylight in the evening again.
Anyone remember me? I doubt it but I'm hopeful I may see a few familiar faces still on here, even if they don't remember me which I'd quite understand! Have very fond memories of this forum and the folks on it.
Will update again soon!
