Hello - Just signed up about 45 seconds ago! I recently discovered this plan over the weekend after toying with the idea of starting running but not really having a clue where to start.
I am thinking of starting it next week, early in the morning so that nobody will see me keeling over and possibly dying at the side of the road but I'm so worried that I won't be able to do it.
I'm really quite unfit but already, before I've even tried it, I'm convinced it's worthless, despite seeing so many success stories. I just don't like failing and running, well, it seems completely impossible!
I only have normal trainers, not running shoes, and I really don't want to spend money on trainers and then never use them. I'm saving for a holiday in November and every penny counts at this late stage in the game! So this is adding to my 'don't bother' excuses...But then again, running through Central Park would be amazing!
I just don't know what to do, should I try it in my normal trainers to see if I get on? Or is that just asking for injuries? Should I find another activity that's more suitable?
Thanks for your help and advice C25Kers!
