So I started the c25k five weks ago but have only seen these blogs which are great as suddenly you dont feel alone plodding to Laura!
Firstly a bit about me I`m 41 asthmatic and diagnosed COPD sufferer so not the greatest of starts but hey ho.
Before Xmas I weighed in at 89.9Kg (13stone 13lbs) and at only 170cm (5` 7") I could feel the unhealthyness i.e leaning on the bannister when walking a flight of stairs!!
Already yesterday I weighed in a 85kg (13 stone 5lbs) and have only cut out the rubbish snacks and quit alchohol and I`m amazed!!
So somehow I came across this and here I am at week 5, the last 4 weeks have been ok, its remarkable how gasping on the 1 minute runs on week 1 seems like a lifetime ago ( I say run, plodding is more like it) all my running is done on a treadmill as the cold air is a killer on my lungs and the gym is warmer! In the spring/summer i do plan to run outside and look at a couple of 3k runs to do.
I have now though picked up a chest infection that`ll knock me out for about 5 days, so I guess it`ll be a case of re-doing week four first before moving on but Im in no hurry the joy is moving and loosing weight.
Anyway great to see others struggle too, it weird the euphoria you get from not stopping but its definitely a buzz.
