Hello there, I haven't written on this forum for quite a long time (I did Couch to 5k 3 and a bit year's ago) and I'm sure the vast majority of you are new and weren't on the Forum back then.
I'm a 50 year old asthma sufferer and prior to doing it the first time I hadn't done any exercise really in 30 years.
Anyhow, back then I got through it in the 9 weeks, pushed on and broke 10k a couple of months later and got to the point where I did last years Great North Run in 2 hours 10 minutes, faster than I ever thought I could do by far.
However since that point I have really let things slide, have barely run and am probably as unfit as I was before I started first time.
2 days after my 50th birthday and looking at the expanding waistline, it's time to start running again.
So out I went this afternoon and did Week 1 Run 1 again, and it certainly showed how far my levels have fallen as even this was quite hard.
However, having done the programme before I know exactly what a miracle it is. I will keep you all updated on my progress and I'm very happy if you want to message me to share my experiences and maybe give you a bit of advice if you are having any doubts about your ability to get through it.
Run happy, run safe.
