Hi so week 1 done and so proud of my best friend and myself. I am struggling with the running. I am doing a gentle jog just can't go faster. Never could jog even in my teens. Now 50 and a bit !! really finding it hard. Admit I am a smoker yes horrid I know. Best thing is that for first time ever I actually want to stop and lead a healthier life. On to week 2.
Got to keep going: Hi so week 1 done and so... - Couch to 5K
Well done, you can do it! I’m 53 classed as obese (working on it), gave up smoking in August. I’ve never run in my life and w1r1 I really thought I was going to die in the first 30sec of the first run. This afternoon I’m doing w8r2. Slow is really good....even the snails get away from me! If I can do this so can you. Don’t let the gremlins win and happy running 🏃♀️
Try watching this to see what slow and steady should look like: goo.gl/images/3j7m81 Speed isn't helpful when you are starting out and building up stamina.
Great that you are considering giving up the cigs. Good luck with both that and your C25K journey.
