I am Spud and I am a Potato................
After always being reasonably active (being able to do 45 minute Spinning classes, play squash, golf, the odd run etc) I I didn't consider myself to be a "Couch Potato".
I have always though, thought of myself as being useless at running, having always having to intermittantly stop & walk! I didn't know if this was mental or physical but didn't enjoy running at all. And this frustrated me as I know running does me good!
I, therefore, decided to give the Couch to 5k a go to see if a structured programme could help me improve.
I thought the first walk / run looked relatively easy (and will have to admit, considered skipping a week or two) - but I did my first one yesterday and was surprised that I did the same distance I have done previously in just about the same time as when I used to go out for a "run"!!!
Which dismayed me a little!!!
I therefore had to admit that I must be a Potato and need this programme!
Will hae to admit, I actually quite enoyed the structure of the C25K session though - so am going to push on inspired by some of your blogs & comments about your achievements.
Good Luck to everyone doing this
