Yay - Made it 1st Anniversary

Yay - Made it 1st Anniversary

Hello All,

Well I got here. Today is the 1st Anniversary of me quitting the fags.

It's been hard at times but so worth it now.

My next challenge is to get a fitter, so don't laugh but I've now started the Couch Potato to 5K training plan. Something I could not have considered a year ago (couldn't run up the stairs without my chest feeling like it was on fire then) so fingers crossed I stick to this too. Hopefully it'll help shift a few pounds in the process.

Best wishes to all who are also on the no smoking pathway.

Good luck,

  • Congrats and best of luck with the 5k. Quitting smokes opens up all sorts of opportunities.

  • No chuckling from me about going for the couch to 5K. Go for it and don't let anybody put you off if you find it hard going; everybody finds it hard at first. Do you know there's a Couch to 5K community on here? Might be worth joining if you haven't already?

    Congratulations on 1 year as well - great stuff!

  • Thanks I'll have a look 😊
