Day 1 of week 1 completed

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and new to running. At the age of 46, I have always found an excuse not to exercise on a regular basis. I have always secretly admired those people who run. So when I was asked at work to take part in a 10K at the end of April, I initially said no and that I would never be able to run that far in a million years. I work in a fantastic team, with everyone being very encouraging and telling me that if I download a couch to 10K app, it really is achievable...........even for a middle aged woman like myself. So I set my alarm for 5.30 this morning..............unfortunately it did go off and whilst I contemplated hitting that snooze button, I knew that if I did not get up this morning and start the running programme then I never would. So pleased I got up and got on with it, even at such an early hour. I managed to complete day 1 and felt a huge sense of achievement. I know its very early days but I am determined to be able to run the 10K. For those of you thinking "is she mad" getting up so early????? For me running first thing in the morning is going to be the best time, as once I am home from work I tend to just want to chill and don't think I would be disciplined enough to go out for a run. Will keep you posted on my progress and look forward to being part of the forum and getting to know beginners like myself.

Deb, great job and congrats on starting the program. I do the same thing, alarm goes off sometime between 5:30 and 6 a.m., depending on how far I'm running that morning. I feel the same way, by the end of the day, I will not want to get out on the road. I've also found that a good run is a great way to get the day started. I feel like I've accomplished so much before 7 a.m.
