I have started running with the podcasts before but today decided that This Is It. I am going run for 5K, 3 times in a week, before the summer is out. Previously, I have found that something has caused me to miss a run and that has been that. I would try to get back into the routine but would find a reason to stay inside. I hope that by keeping a diary in the form of a blog I will be able to keep track of my progress and that will be some incentive to keep to the plan.
I was wondering whether to start with week 1 run 1 and am glad that I did. The first 2 runs were fine but I then found that I was feeling leggy, short of breath and generally quite gross. It has been raining intermittently here in Devon and it is pretty muggy. I use mapmyrun which tells me that I did 4.01 km in 32mins 42s. This includes the warm-up and warm-down walks. I think that I am generally quite healthy but was surprised that I felt a bit ill. It is probably down to the fact that I haven't done much exercise for about a month and so I shouldn't have been surprised at all.
