I've been fretting about the third run of this week for at least 2 weeks now. I read the posts here, and had been psyching myself up for it by thinking that I just needed to have faith in the programme and myself; that if I did all the runs before it, I would be able to run 20 minutes. But, I had this doubt in the back of my mind because I think most of the posters here are probably not as overweight as I am, and maybe it just wouldn't be possible for someone like me. I'm female, 37, ~155cm (5'1") tall, and this morning before my run, I weighed exactly 17 stone (238 lb).
However, for other C25Kers my size who are just starting out, I want to say, YOU CAN DO IT! I went out this morning nervous and panicky and worried, but I just paced myself as usual, listened to Laura, and kept telling my legs to keep moving, and I made it! YOU CAN, TOO!
Thanks to everyone here for all the posts. I find reading them so encouraging. I'm not sure I'd have believed in myself enough to keep on without you all.
Wishing everyone more great runs!
