Hello folks, new on here today.
But I've been working my way through nhs couch to 5k app for a few weeks. Well, I completed week 4/day one yesterday. Tough but not absolute hell. I had a giggle on the 1st of the 5 minute jogs, thought I was getting well through it (thinking only had minute or so to go) and that welcoming voice tells me I'm only half way through it!!
I've never run before, always walked (including hill walking) or cycled. It was my partner that wanted to try it and I said I'd join her for support. Unfortunately she's had to stop it just now due to terrible knee pain but I'm still going strong. Makes it a bit lonely doing it on my own but my dog joins me sometimes.
I'm completing the course to help with weight loss as well as getting back to fitness levels I've been at before. With hypopituitarism it can be tough loosing weight (taking steroid/testosterone levels/etc) but doing very well just now as over 10 weeks have lost 2st & 1lb.
My only problem will be keeping it going when the nights close in a bit but feeling a lot better than have done for a while.
