Well, this was a shock after chatting to my girlfriend who was planning on starting C25K back up after a years break, a voice that was mine said I think I'll have a go too!
4 weeks later I'm on WK4R3 tomorrow, and surprised that I'm actually enjoying! I've even bought proper shoes and running getup, although I won't sacrifice my dignity completely and run in tights! I'm 40 for heaven sake its not a good look, for this overweight 6ft 2in bloke.
I googled profusely after I said I'd do it and downloaded the excellent Rundouble app to my phone. I listen to my own playlist and have a very mechanical sounding voice tell me when to run and walk. It uses my phones GPS so I can see how far and where I've been. If your interested you can follow my tweets @tioaboa to see how this fat old bloke is getting on
The biggest surprise is how you seem to get better each time. R1 this week was a struggle, but i was elated when i finished it and I ran 5mins non stop!! Twice! Even better was last night. I was jogging along thinking about my route and where I felt I could keep going to and I'd already done the 3mins the same happened with the 5mins! so bring on Wk5 and even scarier was me thinking I could maybe do with out the 90sec breather in between!
A mate thinks I've been abducted by aliens and I'm a poor clone that the programming went wrong on!
My lovely lady is a week ahead on WK5 and its been a great help to compare progress give each other encouragement, sadly time and work means we can't run together easily.
So to anyone thinking about it have a go, I'm sold on the idea that as long as you get out and have a go, its better than going to sleep on the sofa in front of the telly.
BTW this is an excellent forum, been great to lurk around and follow people at the same general point as me.
