At the start of the year I decided to lose weight, just cutting out fattie foods and eating more healthy meals. I weighed 18st 4lb's. Then someone told me about couch 2 5k, I looked it up, downloaded the podcasts and started the program. I followed it week by week and graduated the week before last. This morning I decided to have a go at the Swindon Park run which I completed it in 29.45, which I'm chuffed with. As I type this I am 14st 12lb's, the lightest I've been for years, and the fittest I've been forever!
As someone who hadn't thought about fitness or dieting in any of my 49 years I can honestly say it's the best thing I've ever done for myself.
My next aim is to run in the Swansea 10k in support of a charity set up in the name of a friend who died in February, so onwards and upwards and good luck to anybody who's read this far.
P.S. I'm the slightly uncomfortable looking one with the hat!
