You know what, I’m 36 am morbidly obese and have always watched on as so many friend and family have running successes.
I decided to do C25K to improve my health, my anxiety and see if I could prove myself and others wrong.
During Week 1 I just about managed to keep up with the runs and had to convince myself to go out but only after dark to avoid being seen!
Fast forward to week 5 and even with the storm raging and no longer caring if I’m seen, I couldn’t miss my weekend run! I’ve just got back from my W5R3 and have run for a continuous 20mins. How did that happen?
I might not be breaking any land speed records and I’m sure I can walk quicker than I run but I couldn’t be more proud of myself!
Well done to everyone pushing themselves with this program and to anyone thinking of starting out, if I can, anyone can! Go for it.
As I reward I’m going to buy myself a waterproof jacket. I may have run for 20mins but I’m soaked.
I’m looking forward to W6!
