Hi all, I have had asthma since I was a child I'm 35 now. I'm overweight and have decided I want to get fit and healthy, and in the process help raise money for asthma uk. I'm going to start the couch to 5k program and build up from there. I tried this program last year but got disheartened when I wasn't progressing as quickly as the guide was. I've since read that asthmatics will normally take double the time that a non asthmatic would in a journey like this.
So my questions are has anyone ever tried this kind of thing? How did you get on? And any other runners out there with any advice would be great?. My town do a free park run every week of 5k so I'm hoping to be able to do this with my partner soon.
