  1. I love a quote on here that I keep repeating to myself; 'The pain of discipline is less than the pain of regret'. I actually replace the word 'discipline' with 'running'. I've found it really hard to keep going some days (or even get out of bed in the first place!) My regret would be putting back on the weight I've lost, feeling unfit, having less energy and going back to the dark days post baby.


    Keep going, you can do it!

  2. I've just finished week 6 and am fairly comfortable running for 20+ minutes (as long as I don't go too fast!). I've found a local 5K Parkrun that I could try on Saturday if I'm feeling brave. I won't normally be able to make it as I wouldn't have childcare but this weekend I have some so could give it a go. Do you think I should have a go or should I wait until I finish the C25K program? I'd be interested to see what kind of time I'm running it in. On the other hand, it could be a complete disaster!

  3. Hi, I tried a bit of running before I got married, 5 years ago but absolutely hated it! After having my second baby 7 months ago, I knew I had to do something to reduce my ever growing waistline and improve my (non-existent) fitness levels. As it was winter I didn't really fancy running, so I started walking everywhere, mainly so that the sprog would sleep! Gradually the weight dropped off and by June I had lost 2 and a half stone. Just the last stone that would stubbornly not shift, so I decided that I would attempt some running. I thought it had to be easier than last time as my fitness levels were much better. I didn't want to go charging around as I'd fail before I even started so I'm so glad I found this app. It makes me less competitive with myself and making me pace myself. Just completed W2D1 and feeling really positive about running.
