Hey guys, I'm Dave, I'm 20. As a student I'd say I was victim to too many vodka calories, junk food and microwave meals. I'm overweight, not hugely, by BMI is about 26, but enough that I'm body concious. I'm a bit embarrassed so I don't want to use the gym where all the uni teams hang out comparing pecs and abs so I wanted to take up running. I've tried it before, but found no motivation or anything. Stopped after a ten minute jog etc. However C25K is much better than anything I've tried before. I've just done the first day today and I can say it was tough, 60 seconds is a lot longer than you think and the lactic acid was really building up after the first few runs but I managed it to the end and I'm so proud of myself. I've tried and failed to get started many times but you can do it and the podcast really helps motivate you! Good luck everyone else who's trying it out!
