A year since C25K and I'm still going!

Hello! I've been absent from the fourm for a good few months and it's lovely to see LOADS of new members and everyone at various stages of C25K. :) Not sure if there's any familiar faces still about, it's been a while!

While running a favourite 5k route yesterday I was reflecting on how a year ago I was struggling to even run for 60 seconds and now I'm training for my second half marathon in March, seems unbelievable!

I have C25K to thank for getting me here so just a wee bit of encouragement to any of you just starting out to keep going and you'll be amazed.

Yeah, good see you back and to hear you are still pounding the pavements of our lovely city. Don't be a stranger and be sure and let us all know how your 1/2M goes, good luck with it. Hope the weather is better for you than it is just now, its really icy and slippy outside tonight so be careful if your out there.



I also started a year ago too, but not achieved half as much as you. Though the good thing I am still running 3 times a week too.


Really encouraging to hear that you have kept the running up and doing half marathons. am on week 7 and so want to make this a permanent lifestyle change.
