Hi. Started this last week, and I did 2 sessions of week one, but I was just estimating the time, guessing that about 100 of my lolloping "strides" would be about a minute . Used the stopwatch on my phone on Sunday and was a bit shocked at how long 60 seconds actually is! Also found myself on some hilly ground, so found it hard!! So I have now downloaded the podcasts (never done that before) and found the earphones that came with the phone and have sat in the box for 2 years, and did week 1 run 1 "properly"!! I also stuck to some flat ground and just went backwards and forwards on that. Almost bearable. By the way I am 57 and the weight has crept on over the last couple of years, so I need to lose about 3 stone (I've never been thin!) but more importantly get fitter. Great to have found this site- just what I need. Hope I can keep it up. The dog will be getting fitter too!
