I joined here last week to find support for my husbands COPD and found so much more. I read some very inspirational stories of people with COPD completing couch to 5K and liked the chance to do it myself to help with my weightloss and suggested it to the hubby. He was very reluctant at first but I showed him some of the stories on here so he said he'd try. Well it may only be about 30 seconds but he actually ran with me yesterday! His recovery time wasn't brilliant but he ran and he enjoyed it. This is very much a happy dance moment for me as he has been very down lately but since then he has perked up quite a bit. Hopefully we'll get a few more running bursts this week too. I'd like to try and build him up over the next few weeks so he's more prepared to officially start week 1.
