I am new to the NHS couch to 5k 9 week running plan, already 1 week in, and (I think) I'm starting to enjoy it. Me and my sister are doing this together for different reasons, mine being; wanting to lead a healthier lifestyle involving regular exercise, and wanting to look good for my upcoming graduation ;D
So far me and my sister have the same feelings about the running program; we love the idea! and the first run of week 1 was fairly easy, the 2nd not so ( our bodies knew what was coming ) However having completed the 3rd run of the week, we both wanted to carry on, even after the ever helpful Laura told us to warm down! However, we feel fab already! We can not wait to see how we take to the gradual incline of the program. Were curious to know what are other peoples experience of stepping up a notch are? as week 2 starts tomorrow and we want to be prepared almost! We really would like to see this through to the end and hopefully to continue. Has anyone got any advice/tips for newbies?
I hope to post on mine and my sisters behalf, to help anyone who may be a few steps behind on the program seeking help, as I have done. Reporting on our progress, weight loss, and asking questions along the way
Thank you to my friend Nicola for telling me about this - getting me back onto the wagon when I was on the verge of giving up.
