I am the queen of half finished keep-fit programmes. I must have a library of exercise DVDs and books all gathering dust on the book shelf which have looked reproachfully at me for the last 20 years. I have no idea how I got to this programme but I am so glad I did.
I hovered around this forum for several weeks reading all the inspiring and supportive posts before daring to try running for myself. I couldn't even complete W1R1 and thought it just proved I was too old (56) and too fat (14 stone) to ever achieve fitness. I posted my fears on here and could not believe the warmth and kindness of the replies.
Well, it's taken me 14 weeks - with time off for physio for a knee injury (my ancient joint did not like being asked to move faster than a stroll initially) and this morning I finally made it to the end of Week 9. I still have a long way to go to further increase my fitness - running 5k is my next goal. In 30 minutes I'm only making 2.7kms so there's definitely room for improvement!!
I look forward to reading everyone's graduation posts and will be back asking for advice on life after the lovely Laura - with her truly dire taste in music!
Happy Running and thanks to you all!
