Started writing this while delayed at an airport ..... and thought I would share my C25K experience for other road warriors out there.
Background: Male, age 47, weight 113kg, last ran for more than a bus in high school, I do a sedentary job with much international travel, do some cycling, occasional walking to the bus-stop when home, and have taken up skiing. Have a mix of business and leisure trips to Senegal, Italy (twice), UK (twice), Costa Rica, Florida and Ireland over the period I will be on this programme, so we’ll see how the lack of a steady routine plus jet lag impact things.
W1D1: just back from a business trip to Denver, USA, where I definitely overindulged. It’s 30 degrees outside, and I’m tired from the trip back to Europe, but determined to get going as my wife and kids have started the programme and I promised I would do it if they did. I jog and walk up and down the road behind our house, but can only manage 7 reps each of 50 seconds jogging. Lesson learned: jogging in the heat the day you get off a transatlantic flight is probably not the best beginning!
