I started the C25K plan yesterday and was pleasantly surprised by how I managed it. There was a little bit of aching and I was tired by the end of it, but not so exhausted that I couldn't carry on. I shocked myself and actually managed to stay at the gym for a little bit longer once I'd finished running doing some arm exercises. I'm glad that it was relatively successful because it's made me feel better about completing the whole nine weeks - if I can handle week 1 now then I'm hoping things will still be manageable as I move forward and start to get fitter and better at running.
I've never been much of a runner - I always feel a bit daft on a treadmill - but I do swim quite regularly and I try to go to the gym after work a couple of nights a week. I really let this slide over Christmas though and I needed a good plan to kickstart my exercise again. I'm so glad I found C25K and this lovely community to help me get going again!
Hope everyone else is having a successful week!
