Well, am feeling completely exhausted, but feel pleased too. I've just done 20 minutes on the exercise bike - 9.2km! I'm pleased because I have only been back on the bike for a week as before this I was in too much arthritis pain in knees and hips. So I started off last Saturday doing 10 minutes and have gradually increased it over the week. I don't feel any pain - just feel my heart is about to explode even after nearly half an hours rest afterwards! Not good - I'm sure it'll get better - either that or I'll explode!

I started the 12 week plan in the middle of April and as of this week I have lost 3 stones and 6lbs. I feel so much better physically and mentally, but know I still have a long way to go.... Thanks for all the support on here, I love reading all the posts and hearing of everyone's successes. We're in it together everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Wow you are doing so so well and exercising like that tooโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ I didn't start till 19th May so on week 14 now and upping the exercise is something I need to do so I am going to start the c25k tomorrow if I fail at that it will be back to walking/treadmill I am afraid. But you should feel so proud of yourself especially with the pain as well. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š Best wishes Bev

  • Hi just wanted to say, I am on week 7 of the c25k. I am no runner, overweight and exercise averse, but started the program and have never looked back! It's not easy, every run is a challenge, but I would encourage you to have a go! If I can, anyone can ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Thanks for that๐Ÿ‘ I am in the same boat but today I will give it a go, glad you are doing so well but more than that enjoying the experience. Best Wishes Bev๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ

  • Well done and yes, I can understand the heart thing, I get that too and feel shaky for a while afterwards but that's only because we're not use to pushing ourselves like that! Keep at it! :D

  • I had a short shot of my exercise bike and when I came off my legs were wobbly. A fitness instructor says it is because it's unnatural. You have inspired me to go back on it. Thank you and we'll done to you
