Now it may not rival you top bods, but I'd like to see my (so far today) 5989 steps up there.
Ah well, maybe, sometime, never.
#3 wahoo! Will enjoy it whilst it lasts
I got to almost 19k today which is quite an achievement at the mo. I've barely managed 10 since being in England. I love being here but am really missing my usual routine. My body is missing it I think. I feel stiffer and achy from sitting down too much and not being as active.
Does that happen to anyone else now that you've become more active? I'm sure it's not just in my head. Well at least I think it isn't!
Question: I broke my lower left leg badly (just above the ankle, not sure how I got away with only losing some cartilege in the ankle!) 2 years ago and have not even tried to really run on it yet (half jog very rarely and not for long). Do you think C25K would work for me? The leg healed well, just have a few pieces of hardware still in there, so not quite as flexible as my right ankle, but doing ok. And walking is no problem, do have a problem with weather though! Aching pain below 40F or major weather front coming through!
usually set it to 4.5-5 (I think that's Km/h..?) which is a semi brisk walk (for me anyway)
I was putting it on a incline of 4 to start with but then my hips started getting quite sore, taking out the incline stopped that. They have been better lately though so I might start slowly adding it back in one point at a time.
My aim is more just to be moving more rather than curled up on the couch - but I also want to actually "feel" it too
Regarding your injury, as it's a slow, steady training programme I suggest you listen to your body at every level.
Will you be running outside or using a treadmill? Only reason I ask is watch out for uneven ground as it jars my grumpy knee, so it may affect your leg too.

Go Penny. Go Penny Go Penny. Go Penny.
It's a nice programme. I'm back to week two which was very easy for me, but want to build back up without the aches.I'm sure you can do it. Just don't listen to the clunking. Get your earphones in and go go go.
I was thinking that encouraging someone just starting out to run 25km was a tad aggressive...
