Wow! I have just finished the one we all think must be impossible! I have been dreading it all of week 5 and wondering how I would ever complete it. I was totally unfit when I started week one -hardly being able to run the sets of 60 seconds.
Today I changed my mindset and started to look forward to the big 20 minutes. I drank lots of water and felt prepared for whatever it was going to be like!
I am doing C25K with my 14 year old son- he’s been great and we’ve got better together. So we set of in good 5pm sunshine then 3 minutes in to the run it absolutely poured down! We ran in torrential (often horizontal) rain- not knowing if we should cry or laugh as we went.
Maybe getting soaked helped us focus on the task - we didn’t feel too tired and kept up a slow but steady pace.
We are now both so pleased that we have done this. If you’re approaching this run - look forward to it! Such an achievement for everyone on this great programme!
