Hi, i started C25k this week, the 1st session was so hard..i was sweating buckets and my face went purple but i cannot tell you how pleased i to complete it. I am using a treadmill ATM as not brave enough to run outside, (plus i recall the doctor telling me some years ago (last attempt at gym) that i have some kind of asthma that makes me cough till im sick if i exercise outdoors) i still coughed hard for about an hour after my 1st session but on the 2nd it wasnt too bad.
For the record i am a 16st man of 41, 5`8 and a smoker, i also drink too much and until now took no exercise at all, having a desk job. All of this i am trying to change..hence finding myself on here.
My main problem is breathing, i am literally gulping in air and feel i cant breathe, i dont really know if this is an asthma issue as i don't use an inhaler or anything and only suffer with breathing when i try exercising or go out in cold air from warm and vise versa.
I just wanted to say im glad i have found this site as it truly is inspiring.
P.S am i the only bloke on here? lol
