Couch 2 5K

I don't think I ever expected to be writing a review of an exercise programme, much less something like Couch 2 5K.

Back in March I had a health check, and discovered I was clinically obese. (To be honest, the huge belly I had was also a hint, but one I was studiously ignoring.)

After some time looking at my options, I was surprised to find that running was my best bet, and that C25K (as it's known) was probably the best way to start.


Reasons to like the Barbican

I enjoyed a very nice stroll around the Barbican at lunch today.


One of the reasons I really like walking around there is that it separates you from road traffic. It's not just the much lower level of noise, but also the fact that nothing apart from joggers is moving much faster than you. That makes it feel much more serene. It encourages you to slow down and relax.
