So, quick update folks. I had completed C25K last year and was running 5k every other day and then bam! had a stroke last September. Anyway the top and bottom of it is C25K worked for me so I started the programme again once I felt a bit more human and my stroke consultant said go for it. I've just completed week 4 and found the first run a bit hard but then sessions 2 and 3 were ok. Another spanner in the works is the stroke may possibly have come from a problem with my heart but again the cardiologist has said for me to be as normal as possible and for me that is C25K. I'll probably have to go back to week 1 (for the third time) when I have the heart op but I know for now the programme is helping me to be in optimal health. If you're having a wobble or doubting you can do it don't,the programme really works.
