I started the c25k last summer in July after having my second baby in April and having never run before. I got stuck on week 5 for what felt like forever (went on holiday, moving house etc) but finally graduated a couple of months ago. I've since been working on the graduate programme and am really enjoying them.
When I started I didn't pay much attention to the blogs here but now looking over them I wish I had done so before, it's all so supportive and inspiring!
So now I consider myself a 'real' runner... did my first 10k in 1hr 1min 12s and am looking to beat that on my second 10k this weekend. In order to push myself further I hope to build up to a half marathon but I've enjoyed the programme so much that I would really like the structure of something similar to help me along. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't want a written programme as I really like the simplicity of putting my headphones on and just doing what I'm told!!
To anyone who has just started, is thinking about starting or is just a bit stuck somewhere in the middle - keep going, repeat the runs if you need to, stick with it and you will get there!
