Day 1 of week 1

Well after spending sometime trying to download the pod cast I finally set off with Laura blasting in my ears. I have to say it was not easy buy I managed it, bit of pain in the old calf's and ankles but feel I have achieved something. Looking forward to my next outing on Wednesday, I also found out that the park I used has a parkrun every Saturday morning at 9.30. something for me to build up to as twice around the park = 5k !

  • Well done! That first step may well be the hardest but keep at it :) Nice that you have parkruns in your area too. Good luck and keep going :)

  • Goals are good! Well done chum.

  • Ha ! Nobody said it would be easy and a bit of discomfort in the calves and ankles is only to be expected if you are starting a new form of exercise. BUT very well done for starting and making the commitment to a new healthier you. Good news that your park run is a two lapper because did you know that you can turn up and just do one lap (2.5k) if you'd like a flavour of it before you have a go at the whole thing ? Maybe you could aim for doing that at the halfway mark ? Any way, getting ahead of myself here, wishing you all the best for Wednesday...Let us know how you get on.

  • Well done ! Hope it goes well for you.

  • Well Done FBS2!!! W1R1 is by far the hardest and the one your body most objects to ... so I hope you stretched well after. Keep at it, take it nice and steady and you will be doing that parkrun in no time :D

  • Good luck! Laura will guide you all the way

  • Well done !

    Youre bound to feel a bit achy and a discomfort at first, I think its our bodies way of protesting after years of couch surfing . You will be fine, you've taken that first step and that's the most important one.

    Good luck to you, keep posting , oh and great to have a goal to work for with the Park Run- Excellent ! :-) xxx
