Back at the start of May I got sick."it's just a cold" my wife said (it was actually Man Flu! ) Anyway, it knocked me for six. I was 45 years old, unfit, a little overweight and hadn't exercised for a good few years. I felt like I was losing my health and was at a crossroads where I could continue downhill or do something about it. Now the truth was I had no motivation, I couldn't see any option but to continue the slide. Then, I found the C25K website by pure chance (or someone was looking over me). Four months later and I am running three times per week. After graduating a month ago I thought that without the pressure to complete the course I would falter. I have maintained the discipline to run three times a week. Today I achieved 5k in 30m40s. I kept running as I was feeling good and hit 6k in 36m09s. With warmup and cool down added I did 7k in 45m. This isn't Mo Farrer. I am not an athlete I am a middle aged bloke with a busy life and stressful job C25K has given me back my self confidence and dignity. New clothes a size smaller, feeling better than I have for years, it has been a revelation. If you are wondering whether or not to give this a go then just do it, take the plunge, you will NOT regret it.
