Well as the title says I'm a C25K beginner after starting on Sunday and I'm looking for inspirational advice and stories!
Bit of background about me, I'm 23 (nearly 24) and I am the queen of excuses when it comes to running...I can't run, my legs are crap (got bad cartilage in my knees and tendonitis in my ankles), I'm too tired, there's something on telly, I'll do it tomorrow....on and on it goes! But over the past two years (since I met the other half) I've noticed the weight creeping on and as a giant of 5ft 1 it shows!
I've been planing to start the C25K for ages now after reading about it on the NHS choices website and I finally got round to starting on Sunday, and have just finished my 2nd run tonight. I really like Laura on the podcasts, and I like having someone there to tell me when to run and walk and feel really motivated!
I have to say I was shocked at how breathless I was after the minute of running, it was awful! But its made me even more determined to carry on and get to 5k! I've noticed my legs (shins and calves) are feeling quite tight, but I suppose after years of a sedentary lifestyle that's bound to happen!
So if anyone has any tips or hints I'd be grateful!
