Hi all! This must be the 6th time I’ve signed up to C25K and quit but I’m determined not to this time! I go away in July and would love to lose some lbs and I get married next year so have to get fit!!

First run went well! Roll on run 2!!

Well done for giving it another go - not everyone gets through it first time but persistence pays off. I look forward to the "Ive only gone and done it" report after wk 9 run 3 that you will be posting :-)

Keep up the running commentary Amy. We love to hear about your successes and also the times when it's hard. We have all been through it too. You don't run alone.

This is the one.

Thanks for all your feedback guys! Do you recommend taking a rest day after a run or can I run on consecutive days? I feel I’m ready to go again tonight. 💪🏼

Hi! Welcome! Absolutely no running on consecutive days. Your muscles need time to recover from the stress of running plus it’s always best to look forward to it!

Well done for starting again; most of the hard work appears to be mental. Once you get over that part i'm sure you'll do well

Yes definitely agree there! I have a bad habit of not pushing myself hard enough!
