I wish I'd have been as active as I was cynical for the last decade!
I'm 32, overweight, with heart probs. Always shyed away from running because I get so knackered after 60 secs I'm disheartened and give up.
I thought I'd try this programme, seems a bit of a gimmick, but hey!
Week 1 Run 1 - As I expected, I was a mess after 60 secs of running, but I persevered and completed it. I was still pretty out of breath at the end of each 90 sec walk. I was plesantly surprised that I didn't ache all over the next day!
Week 1 Run 2 - Felt about 5% easier than run 1, still cant imagine running for more than 60 secs tho.
Week 1 Run 3 (last night) - Running felt like walking! I don't know whats happened, but it was 100% easier. I recovered from each run in about 15 secs! After the 8th and final run I hadn't broken a sweat, and felt on top of the world. I rewound the podcast and done it again. 16 runs and I hadn't broken a sweat!
I really don't know what happened between runs 2-3 but I feel like a different person. I literally cant believe the difference in a week! I don't want to be over confident as I know it will ramp up a lot from now, but I totally trust it!
Stay in there everyone, it really, really works!
