I feel like a bit of a fraud as I haven't actually begun yet... the great moment is planned for tomorrow morning. I do, however, have a habit of finding excuses not to begin on things, whether it be getting fitter, losing weight or cleaning the bathroom, so I hope making a 'public' commitment in a blog will give me the necessary kick to actually get out and DO it!
I did actually complete C25k 3 years ago as part of a 'get fit, lose weight' regime I followed, but life got busy (see, excuses again!) and I stopped. Since then the weight has crept on so now I weigh 95k once more, so am back trying to eat healthily and have the twin targets of losing weight and improving my cardiovascular health.
I am encouraged reading some of the blogs here. I am not the only one who feels self-conscious about running in public then! I am hoping that this will become easier as I get into it. At the moment the thought of being able to run for half an hour without stopping seems an impossible dream. I have a feeling I will probably need a few more weeks than prescribed - my starting condition is deplorable, so will see how it goes.
If anyone has any tips for me they will be gratefully received!
