just found this forum a few days ago, and have been reading everyones blogs. Such an inspirational lot you are, Loving reading other peoles stories, so familiar.
So anyway, i thought id have a go and post, iv never used a forum before so sorry if i go on too much or am a bit illegible .
Just finished week 3 yesterday, Never in my wildest dreams could i have imangined that i would be able to run 3 minutes without stopping, but have managed to do that. Somehow ?!? lol
I have surprised myself no end doing this, as i havent exercised in about 16 years since school. And the best bit totally enjoying it too, thats the biggest surprise, how enjoyable and also satisfying it is when you get home and youve completed your run. Ive got the bug big time Feeling the benifits already, when im out walking the dog, id find myself out of breath by the end of the walk. long gone is that, Not really lost any weight, but that isnt why im doing it anyway, just want to get fit.
Not really suffered any pains in my legs, other than the very first two runs, and even the breathless is no where near as bad as i imagined. The odd stitch in my side now and again, but ive found putting my hands on my hips standing up straight whilst keeping walking and taking two slow breaths stops that instantly.
The worst bit is the red face though, its getting slightly less, but when i get home and shower my face flames up, but always had a bit of problem with flushing and blushing so it must just be part of who i am.
Just about to begin week four of the programme and pretty nervous, as it looks A LOT ! of running, it looks such a big step up from week 3. Off out tommorrow so fingers crossed i can do it.
