I started C25K on 1st January to coincide with my giving up 25 years of smoking. Wk1 Run 1 was hell! I could just about manage to run for 60 seconds without collapsing. I have religously stuck to the plan untill today, although a real struggle once i got to 25 minutes of running on the treadmill and seeing i had only 0.5 of a kilometre to go to reach 5k i carried on and achieved 5k in 27mins 36seconds. I cannot believe i can run that far! the last time i ran was at school 28 years ago. This plan is amazing, all the way through i have just trusted in Laura and the fact the plan has been tested by thousands and these positive thoughts have got me to 5k in 6 weeks. I still want to complete weeks 7, 8 and 9 but can now do so in the knowledge i can do it!
