W1R2 completed and already I’m feeling happier and healthier! Maybe it’s the fact I’m enjoying the long awaited sunshine or the sea air but C25K is definitely giving me a lot more get up and go. I can see why everyone is so enthusiastic about it.

I have a feeling I might be getting the running and healthy lifestyle bug!!😀🏃

Remarkable how quickly the little changes start- and they will build up!

It certainly is Bard👍


Well done Whitto! What a great place to run. No wonder you are on a high with a view like that and gorgeous sunshine too.

Thanks Delly dot.

It certainly is gorgeous in the sunshine but it’s bloody cold and windy in the winter!!😀

That I can well believe! I ran by the beach on the west coast of Scotland last month and it was blowing a hoolie! Lovely though, when the sun is shining, though not always that much warmer there.

Scotland is beautiful but, as you say, their summer lasts for 3 days!!😀


Isn’t it great running beside the sea Whitto?! I love it, although we don’t have quite so much beach - or is it mud?!

It’s lovely to look at but the tide was out when I took the picture and it’s not really a bathing spot as there are some quicksand areas and the water comes back to where the wall is. About half a mile down the coast there are a few sandy areas where you can relax but it’s the Irish Sea near to where it meets the Mersey and Dee Rivers so not really a swimming sea. As I say, nice to look at but not quite the Seychelles 😀

Sounds like where I live on the River Severn. Nice to look at on a good day, but not really a swimming area.

So glad to hear we have another running convert.😀

It’s very flat Maz, which is great for me at the minute. I’ll save the hills until after I complete the nine weeks!!😀

The location of a run can make a hell of a difference. Congrats for getting going. I’m on W2 and like you I’m so glad I’ve gone for it. The Oxfordshire countryside is my stomping ground and I love running in my surroundings. Keep up the good work fella 👍🏽

Thanks Jarlo, the Oxfordshire Countryside would certainly be ideal for scenery and fresh air!!
