Bexster297
Bexster297Graduate

I actually finished C25k on Tuesday 30th June. Took me a few more weeks but I made it! Running for 30 mins was not my intention, I just wanted some structure to exercise during lockdown. I enjoyed the running until week 5/6 where you run 20 mins. It seemed too much being high impact and I didn't think it was a good idea for me. A mate of mine (multiple marathon runner and running club member) advised that I shouldnt run at all till I've walked 5k for 6 days a week for 9 weeks. Wow! That was motivation for me to carry on!! So, I repeated 2 x 8 mins and 2 x10 mins for a few weeks and then just carried on. I nearly cried when Laura said "you're a runner" at 25 mins. Who knew!

πŸ…πŸŽ‰

Hello, I completed my final C25k run yesterday!

Hi πŸ‘‹

I graduated this morning! Haven’t told many people I was doing it as didn’t want the β€˜have you been for your run today’ constant pressure when I wasn’t sure about how I would do myself!

I was 57 two weeks ago, who suffers from asthma and the thought I would get to run 4K (not near 5 yet...) in 30 mins is truly bonkers πŸ€ͺ

It doesn’t seem 9 ish weeks ago that 60 seconds was such hard work. Whilst this lockdown has been the most horrendous experience for many of us, it has also given us the time and brain space to think about ourselves a little more and how important our health is, so THANK YOU! This is a fantastic resource and have used it throughout the weeks to pick up tips and read through the experiences of fellow C25K classmates!

Looking forward to a bit of freestyle running now, maybe the Tortoise will develop into the Hare one day 😘😘😘

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator in reply to Moogles

That is absolutely wonderful, thank you so much for sharing! Here is your much-deserved badge - congratulations, runner!!

RunningBoy68Graduate in reply to Moogles

well. it is amazing isnt it how fast our body can change & achieve things we thought impossible 9 weeks ago. I really struggled with 90 seconds running now 10 weeks later I know I can do 37mins and 5.5k. I graduated same week too & feel it is a major positive to come from the current pandemic. & finding this Forum was a real bonus.

hope you enjoy your runs & hit the 5k one day.

stay safe

The programme really works and I'm so very happy with myself, I've bought nice new running clothes, ran lots of different routes, struggled over many a hill and drumlin and felt so elated when I kept going. Genuinely proud moment today. And here's to many more.

What a difference a year makes! On this day in 2019 I was admitted to hospital with a huge blood clot post surgery having had a pacemaker fitted in the April. I became less and less active, eating more and more comfort food until we went into lockdown when I decided enough was enough. I can’t say I’m eating much less but I can now run for 30 minutes! When I last went to the pacing clinic my pacemaker was kicking in 70% of the time. I wonder how it is doing with all the extra activity! Anyway, this is not the end! I will continue running and might even try a park run one day! Looking forward to getting my badge 😁

Miracles happen people, miracles happen.

Flye
FlyeGraduate

Hi - I had a horrible start when my legs totally went in wk3 r 1 and I had to stop for two weeks. I was like a car with the suspension gone! Some ligament problems around my knees and a packet of frozen berries regularly on them and some ibuprofen. At 63 years old you might have thought that I would give up but with some support from my other half and a brand new pair of super cushiony running shoes (bit of a leap of faith as not cheap!) I took 2 weeks off and then began cautiously from the start again. Being careful not to slam my feet down and not try to go too fast.

And I never looked back!

Finished wk9 run 3 on 30 june and ran a bit longer to make sure I had done 5k - so it was 3.45 miles in 39 minutes. I've run 3 more 5ks since then, no problem.

So us old uns can do it! Really happy I can still do this and thanks for the advice on here which helped.

Can I have a badge please?

Hi guys, I’ve done the program and can now run 30 mins..can I have a badge please, thanks for the support and the kind words. Just a word of caution to all runners, I did my last 30 3 days ago, I took a route that seemed ok at first, turned into a down hill assort course, dodging huge flint rocks, jumping from one side of the teak to the next..this was highly dangerous, I could have broke bones with on turn of foot. Plan runs and routes, luckily I got away with a lot of soreness. Ice packing and rest. Good luck all, Never stop πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ
