Has anyone else used the services of a personal trainer? I am seriously considering it. I am really floundering in my attempts to regain the fitness I had before I crashed and burned back in February. I started Couch to 5K again but felt, if anything, I was losing yet more fitness by going back to square one. I jumped a few steps and am now due to start Run 1 of Week 6 tomorrow, but to be honest Laura is starting to annoy me. The second time around her 'You're doing REALLY well' sounds hollow. How does SHE know how I'm doing? I'm pathetic. I'm not anywhere near the pace I achieved in January . I'm not doing really well at all! I need someone to slap my wrist and say 'Get on with it girl'. I have found someone who will help me with on-line coaching. It will cost me about as much as I used to spend on cigs 30 years ago (well, inflation adjusted) so I don't feel it's THAT indulgent.
Am I mad?
