As the title says, this is my first post and my first day on C25K.
For many years I've wanted to be a runner, but it's always seemed a bit too far away for me. I'm not too unfit as I cycle about 40 miles a week, but my previous attempts at running have been bad at best.
On previous attempts on running I've always blown in the first mile, this has always made me feel that I'd never become a runner...
Anyway, I've decided to stop smoking ( week 2 now ), increase the cycling miles and start jogging / running.
My intention is to be able to jog / run 5k by Xmas and then 10k by March.
How did I get on with my first day on C25K :
Well, pretty damn good tbh, I completed the first session without feeling like I was going to have a heart attack or feel like there's not enough air in the world !... Yes I was knackered by the end of it, but I did manage it...
This has given me a bit of confidence for completing a 5k non stop by Xmas.
One question, for those of you that have done the C25K, how did you manage to get motivated when the going got hard ?
