So after reading lots of blog posts and feeling very in awe of the graduates and everyone's determination I thought i would share my story. I am a 29 year old VERY unfit lass and 3 weeks ago I thought something must be done! I like the outdoors - walks only but despair at anything more hardcore! I struggle with confidence issues a lot and am insecure so really hoping this mission will improve that.
I have completed weeks 1 and 2 and feel really out of my comfort zone. I have found that stretching after helps with pain although my knee twinges but I struggle on all the runs if I am honest. I have managed to complete each and every one first time which is encouraging but this is through sheer stubborness i think and the only thing keeping me going is that it is 90 seconds. The thought of running for 3 straight minutes is really scary and just feels impossible! I am dying at the end of each run and cant be going too fast as i am just jogging really? Did anyone else feel like that?!
I think joining this and hearing other peoples opinions will really help but for just now can I say well done everyone! I think we should be proud of ourselves no matter where we are in the programme...
