I am in my late 30's, very unfit, well when I started 5 weeks ago and smoked for a good 15 years (quit over a year ago). Anyway, I could not run a few feet down the road when I started as I got very out of breath, my calfs seized and generally always been rubbish at fitness. Well today I completed a whole 20 minutes running with week 5 run 3. I am so proud of myself. I would have never done this without these podcasts. At the start of the run I thought no way I would do it, then I reached 10 minutes, by 15 I wanted to stop but I though no, no, no, keep going, only 5 minutes left!. I had an app on my phone and it said I had run 1.59 miles by the end of it. So chuffed. Keep on running guys.
