Found this community today via a fb friend so here goes...first blog
In the first few weeks i thought 'not sure i can do this' - running for a minute left me breathless with legs that did not feel like mine at all..the step up to 90 seconds similar feelings. But by week 3 I settled into it.
running for 5, 8, ten minutes at a time had me smiling like a loon as i jog along slowly - i street run, passers by gave me the oddest of looks (mind you, sweaty, out of breath, red in the face and madly grinning - i can see where they are coming from )
I have had a few set backs since starting c25k - very sore legs at times, the most horrible cold followed by a cough that would not let me complete wk 5 - so redid that and am all pumped up for todays long run - going to try using my own music today though as finding the music a little flat for me.
People who know me well are shocked when i say i love running - i hate not being able to run now, and love the achievement of each and every run. Yes i have had sore legs, numb feet (laces too tight), and achilles tendon ache n stiffness (swapped capri runners for long legs - problem solved), but actually it all seems to spur me on as i know i am getting somewhere with it all
Very excited that in three weeks time i will (health permitting) be at the end of the programme and just be able to go and run for 30 mins to my tunes.
I promote c25k to anyone who will listen as this programme really does work - and Laura is great - i totally need someone telling me when to run and when to walk - at times its been tough but totally worthwhile.
Nice to have found this community, have been looking up other blogs - really helpful and fun people - now - off to fuel up for the run - happy days
