Back on track...thanks to bloggers

After beginning C25K in Jan thinking there was plenty of time to prepare for running a leg of the Belfast marathon on May 6th, I came down with chesty cold that knocked me out for 3 weeks and then once re-starting I began to feel my Achilles ache and become v sore after W5 R1 so had to stop again a couple of weeks back :-( However reading the blogs on this site, of the highs & lows, achievements and challenges and good advice have kept me hopeful and motivated and yesterday I completed W5 R2 :-) After plenty of stretches Achilles feeling okay :-) So thank you for everyone who posts - sharing your C25K journey really helps. Now I just need to gear up for the mental challenge of W5 R3 planned for Tues...

Good luck for Tuesday, Misfit2013.

In the meantime recharge your batteries and enjoy Easter. And yes, I agree, this blog is an amazingly effective motivational tool. 8-)


Best wishes for that 20 minute challenge! Slow and steady, and you'll be fine. :)
