Hiya, hope I'm posting this in the right section. I'm a newbie to the forums. Let's see: never really run before or did much activity, and I do carry a lot of weight so this has been a challenge. Week 1: painful but great, also helped me quit smoking! I repeated week 1 twice, the second time round I was smoke-free and it was so much better. Now I'm erm in the second repeat of week 2, chiefly because my legs start to hurt Though it's getting better. I never thought I'd enjoy running so much, even though I'm not so good at it. Oh and the weight is dropping, which is great!
