Today I did the first run of the couch to 5k and I really hope by posting this blog it will keep me motivated to carry on, as every attempt at regular exercise has always fallen by the wayside.The weather was so lovely today that I had no excuse but to get the trainers on and start week one.
I have to say I found this podcast quite hard going and my lifelong lack of exercise really showed through. In the middle of the podcast I was willing it to be over. There was also a small matter of a nasty blister that emerged and I had to pause the podcast briefly to deal with that, which felt a bit like cheating!
I felt exhausted at the end but I'm really pleased I got through the first run and hope I will be back here telling you all about run 2 soon!
