Oh My GOD!
I knew I wasn't very fit, in fact I knew I was far from fit, however, over the last 5 months I have lost 46lbs in weight and decided I needed to do more. I am currently 4lbs away from my target weight.
I have been walking a LOT, averaging about 5-6 miles a day so thought this was the next logical step. The last time I ran was many years ago, probably around school age (I'm 40 now!) apart from a quick sprint for the bus or train.
Six lots of 60 seconds running inbetween the walking was hard, very out of breath but I do have to say I enjoyed it in a strange way. Not sure I am looking forward to next time though with 8 "spurts".
Wish me luck!
I just have this desire to complete my transformation by doing a charity run at some point, based on today's effort that may be 6 months to a year away!
