Greetings all! I haven't posted much here, I've really only replied to a couple of questions, but I read the blogs and questions nearly every day. I'm thrilled to say that I have finished the C25K programme and have requested my shiny green badge!
I just turned 48 about a week after I started and am in relatively good shape, but have never wanted to be a runner. But I felt up to the challenge, and a friend of a friend suggested the nhs podcasts.
My sweetie and I did this together over 12 weeks (repeated weeks 5, 6 and 7 due to traveland not wanting start an unknown during and wanting to build up better stamina). I actually rather liked most of the music (except that terrible "I'm the king, baby" rap), in a non-commital way. Except for 3 runs, I've done the whole workout on the treadmill, which while a bit boring, at least gives me the chance to look out into my back yard and watch the birds and such. And we couldn't have done this without Laura--so thanks for the time checks, suggestions and encouragement!
I'll have my graduation run, with my own tunes, tonight.
Thanks to all of you who have posted blogs and questions and answers--I'll keep reading and running!
