Myself and the missus started the C25K yesterday with our first run. Fitness level; low to non-existent and to be fair it's my first time doing any major running since GAA training a decade or so ago. All cycling for me since then. Herself has a good bit of gymwork done over the past few months
Pleasantly surprised by how well I did. Small bit stiff just above the knees, but gone today. Must warm up-down better.
Motivation was simple. Get off my arse. Better eating habits had seen me lose a stone and a half since Christmas, but I needed a goal, so we've targeted a 5k in 8 weeks time.
MrStuffins, keep it up, think of how positive you feel after, and set a medium term target, such as a first 5k. Then use that time and target an improved time for another one a few weeks later.
We're all in the same boat. None of us are Olympians. Our goal is to better ourselves and finish, so pat yourselves on the back for lacing up the trainers and getting out, no matter what level we're at.
