Ok i started my first run today w1 run 1, i have run previously but have gained serious weight since my last time running properly! I weigh 17st 6lb so am a bigger guy and at 30 i think this is my last chance to give running a shot! I have recently found out my wife is expecting so am getting back into shape ready for the little one. Has anyone else just started? fingers crossed i can keep it going
Just started!! fingers crossed!: Ok i started my... - Couch to 5K
It's a good day when you do your first run. The hardest part is getting out there, so well done. Be slow, following Laura's podcast instructions on C25K, ignore the crap music and just do what she says and she will get you round.
Don't worry about lack of instructions about running style yet. Laura will fill you in as the weeks progress. You're doing the right thing and the weight will come off. Don't eat at the end of runs to reward yourself though, as I did, as you won't be running very far to begin with.
Just started today! Yay for New Year's resolutions. A desperate bid to get into shape. I have always hated running and I hated it today. The shower at the end was nice. For early January in Scotland, I really can't complain. A bit of wind, but no rain/snow/ice. I'm running early in the morning, so I'm thinking it will be great to see it slowly getting a wee bit lighter over the next few weeks. Only problem is, I actually have to stick with it....
Congrats on the baby news! I have two under four so can tell you anything that will help improve your energy is a good thing! I regret not doing this when my first was due! I only started today and was surprised by how hard I found jogging for a minute at a time after a brisk walk. Look forward to hearing how you get on
