I hadn't done any real exercise since I left school but am relatively fit & a healthy weight, dabbled with the gym now and then and always gravitated towards the treadmill. Invariably I started to run before I could walk, as it were, and so got disillusioned and would stop. Back to sitting on the couch.......
However, my husband had a health scare and we decided to get fit together. So, I started the C25K programme. I'm 6 weeks in now and really enjoying it. I am running indoors, on our treadmill, so have yet to venture outside, but I love the feel of running.
I am getting up ridiculously early most mornings so that I can run before going to work. I find on the days that I get up later and don't run, that I feel moody & sluggish.
I do find, though, that I feel that I want to run faster. Should I do this or should I carry on jogging at a slower pace until I have completed the full C25K sessions? Jogging at a slower pace seems to feel more laborious and heavy than when I run slightly faster.
