I took on C25K last July. W1R1 tried to kill me I swear! 30 minutes was absolutely impossible. I slowed down and it got a little easier, but stayed challenging almost all the way to that last run.
Today, I ran for almost 150 minutes and completed a half marathon for the first time. I’m no different to any of you guys... and W1R1 of C25K remains the toughest run I’ve ever done... if that changes I’ll come and tell you all about it!
You can do this! If you’re into your journey, rest assured that it gets easier. If you’re reading and thinking of starting, yes run one is tough, but you can do it. The differences it makes to the rest of your lives is amazing... you’ll be able to do so much more with your higher fitness, and apparently we have a longer life expectancy too. So keep going, and change your lives for the better.
Enjoy amazing yourself as you make your journey and see just how awesome you are.
