Feelin' it, week4

Found the step up to week 4 a good challenge. My knees are certainly feeling the 5 minute runs but it was a great feeling when Laura pointed out I'd run more than walked in the session - that's cool! Do feel quietly knackered now tho.

I'm very grateful for this programme so I hope I don't sound awful BUT, that audio track after the first 5 min run in week 4 is so bad I just have to put it out there. It sounds like a rip off of Nik kershaw 'wouldn't it be good' - was anyone else waiting to hear those lyrics?

But that is my only complaint. I think this programme is a real gift. Have any of you guys ever thought about trying to encourage others, like in a workplace setting, to take on something like this? I wonder if the NHS have ever tried to roll it out within big companies or the public service or anything?

Sounds as though you've been bitten by the c25k bug, Hobbitfoot! I agree completely about wanting to broadcast the programme far and wide. So far I think I've only managed to encourage one other person to take it up and I can't quite understand why more people don't want to do the one thing that could radically change their lives for ever! Best wishes for the rest of the programme. :)


LOL i had to ditch laura and the podcasts in the end due to the pants music! I waited until there weren't walk breaks though so it wasn't too complicated. Congratulations on enjoying the program and wanting to spread the word - I agree with your comments.


Week 4 is killing me, can't finish the last 5 minute run, get to about 3 minutes and have to walk for a minute then finish it off :( last week was a bad week weather wise so never got out, and this weekend I've had a chest infection so it's gonna take me ages LOL ;)
