I just finished Week 1 and I absolutely love this program. I'm 56 and have been somewhat active, meaning exercising whenever I felt like it or had time. I quit running years ago and told myself I couldn't run anymore--too old, some arthritis in a knee. It is amazing how loud the "no" voices in my head can be. My sister told me about the C25k plan--she's a little younger than I am and I thought if she could do it, maybe I could too. The first day out I was pretty creaky, the second day I went too fast and felt wiped out the rest of the day, today was just right. I didn't get a full night's rest last night and woke up feeling tired and thought there was no way I could do a session today. The "yes" voice in my head spoke up and said, "just get out there and go as slowly as you need to." So, I did just that and really enjoyed my outing. I laughed at the post by one blogger who said she could swear that a snail waved at her as it ran past her. A slow pace is an accomplishment--it's better than not getting out at all.
Laura is a wonderful trainer. Her coaching is so very encouraging--she has convinced me that I can do this. I look forward to the days when I have a C25k workout.
