I think may be I can! !!!!
This all came about because my daughter 13yrs wanted to do the Race for Life this year, as my dad passed away last year. Anyway I had consumed a bottle of red wine sitting on the sofa watching rubbish tv one Saturday night, over weight and 42yrs old, and my mega fit daughter who runs for the local harriers says "I can't enter without an adult". I'm blaming the wine at this point as I said "I'll do it with you, if I can't run I'll walk". There has been much laughing at thought of me sticking to something remotely healthy and my ex husband said "I'll believe that when I see it"
I will be doing Week 3 run 2 tomorrow and considering I was sick after week 1 run 1, couldn't breath or eat anything for 2hrs after (the lack of eating bit was a bonus) I'm kind of excited. That first run was so hard I had serious doubts about being able to do C25K. I found this site and read that a lot of people really struggled with their first run which spurred me on, I never thought I could run for 3min none stop.
I have already seen some benifits not as tired, clothes looser and I have lost 6lb (I am trying to eat healthy too). The race is in 3 weeks so I will be running and walking and just about to start week 6. I wish I had herd about C25K started this sooner.
