I began C25K 9 weeks ago really not sure if I could do it.
2 years ago I ruptured my Achilles tendon, my other tendon was in a bad way too.In January this year I decided I had to do something to lose the extra 5 stone I was carrying.
I downloaded the podcasts,listened to a couple and thought I would give it a go.I thought I could always take it slow, and planned to do each run twice.
W1 R1 was tough.I focused on Laura and somehow completed it. My tendons were feeling ok so I moved on to the next run.
W6 R2 was my toughest run, lots of advice on the forum made me realise I could do this.Best bit of advice was to slow things down, and it really helped.
So tonight I did my last run and I am so happy!!
My goals from now on are to get to 5k and to speed up,I have downloaded the next lot of podcasts to help me.I am a treadmill runner and am very worried about taking the running outside as the impact may not be good for my tendons,but I will give it a go at some point.
Good luck to everyone on this amazing journey, and I can honestly say,if I can do it anyone can.Just listen to your body(and Laura,of course),take your time,hydrate well,and keep it slow
