Just wanted to quickly share my NSV that I ran week 9 of C25K yesterday and did a 30 minute run today. I graduated! It can be done!
And for people trying C25K (a running program where you run and walk and increase the running every week), the first summer I tried I never got off week one. ONE YEAR LATER I'm a graduate. So if you're struggling, take a break and keep trying, it's worth it!
