My younger daughter is now in on the secret. Whilst dear husband was out for the morning we synchronised mp3 players and headed for the hills. As we briskly walked down the path on our warm up she was muttering that she never thought she'd be spending her Saturday mornings trying to get her mother fit. By the time we got to the second run the dog had decided c25k was not for her and nothing but being carried would get her past the third run. What a sight we must have been - child running almost out of sight, mother wheezing along behind with a reluctant dog digging her heels in even further behind. By the 6th minute run I was definitely having second thoughts about the wisdom in starting this but it's the encouragement of people on this website that make me think I've got to keep going. Laura's great, chipping in at just the right time but I'm a bit apprehensive about downloading week 2. Should I stick with week 1 until it gets easier or just go for it?
As we were into the home straight we were spotted by a friend who commented that it looked like it was hard work as we jogged past. The dog had got the scent of home and was racing ahead, ears flapping as she ran. By then we were giggling so much it was hard to keep going. Hard to keep a straight face between us when hubby asked if he could pass on my running shoes to someone else as they weren't being used. Think he might suspect we're up to something but I'd love to be a bit fitter before I reveal the secret, at the moment I just ache everywhere! Please tell me it gets better and that week 2 is nothing to worry about.
