I started this in about May time and having never exercised in my life, 49 years old, drive everywhere, overweight and enjoy too much wine, I have had to repeat most weeks because of not running often enough. I have literally limped my way to week 6. My goal was to complete the program before 10th August, when we were embarking on a cruise holiday, but I failed. However I managed a couple of 15 minute runs on the ship's treadmill and am venturing outside for week 6 run 1 today. It's hard. Bloody tough if I'm honest and doesn't seem to be getting any easier but now that I have found this forum I am hoping the positive comments and support and motivation that you all seem to have, will keep me going. The first 5 minutes of running are absolute hell and then I am counting down til I can stop. The biggest barrier for me is in my head and that's what I need to overcome. Sorry for rambling on.
