week 4 run 1

completed week 4 run 1 yesterday. For some reason i was really nervous beforehand. I did complete it, but it was a push in the second 5 minute stint. Was pleased with myself for finishing and wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't easy, but i had no stitch and although i was breathing hard, i managed it. I am also about 3 stone overweight, so if i can manage it, i hope this post will encourage others. Week 4, run 2 tomorrow!

The only other thing i would say is I don't seem to be losing any weight. I am eating very healthily, low fat, high protein, loads of veg and fruit etc, but even with the running, i'm not losing any timber!! Anyone else in the same boat?


Really well done! It sounds as if you're already smitten! It's a great feeling after each run. Enjoy.
