I've completed the C25K plan! I've stuck at it and achieved my goal when I never thought I could.
I always told myself I wasn't a runner, no stamina. My confidence and self esteem has been so low for so long and now at last I'm beginning to think there are doors opening for me. This is largely down to the community on here, the encouragement and support has been awesome! Inspiring too!
Everyone has difficulties to overcome and reading the blogs about the obstacles some of you have had to face, physical health problems, confidence issues, bereavement, social anxiety and still you have taken them head on and achieved your goals. This has been a major motivator to me.
This sounds really cheesy but at the end of one of my hardest runs I saw the most vibrant rainbow I have ever seen and I thought "yes I'm going to reach my pot of gold" Sorry that's really bad isn't it!
This is the first step for me now, parkruns, Race for life, 10k, half marathon, marathon! Bring it on! I'm even thinking about getting a bike! Good luck to everyone starting out on this and all I can say is if I can do it anyone can!
