After putting on weight consistently and getting less active since I broke a leg 3 yrs ago I figured time to make a change.
I've always hated running but this programme makes it feel achievable. So far it seems just about within my comfort zone, although I'm vaguely aware of my comfort zone being stretched to make that happen.
Just done 1.3 on week 2, with the tail end of a cold, but I wanted to get back into it. I've never looked forward to going for a run before and I don't want to lose that feeling. Think my main issue ( apart from finding breath ) is to keep my head in the here and now. Although I enjoy daydreaming of going for full 5k runs in the summer by the beach and that keeps me going, I often drift into whats coming next week or further on the plan and it almost psychs me out.
I'm hoping that the bit of a high and pride I feel after completing a session will keep me keen for the next one, as I'm pretty sure if I lose consistency I'll fall off this as I have so many other things. Fingers crossed!
Also the community thing is new to me but seems like a great way to keep my attitude right. I've been reading quite a few of your posts and its great to see the responses to each of them too. Its great stuff and you guys are inspiring, so I've taken the plunge and joined. I look forward to reading more of your adventures.
