....and I'm cacking it! I'm on R2W9 so I'm going to just run 30 minutes (yeah, if you say so...sloooowly!) then walk the rest of the way. I only manage 3K in 30 minutes but will try to walk fast for the remainder. Feeling sorry already for the poor 'back-runner' who will have to wait for me but hey, I'm getting out there relatively early on a Saturday morning rather than having my third cup of coffee watching TV.
My knees are feeling it now with the longer runs but again, I'm overweight and getting on. Lost another couple of pounds so hopefully they'll hold out long enough for me to continue my wonderful new hobby once I've lost another couple of stone.
I've made all of this MUCH easier up to now by running on a very flat even surface alongside a beach. It was intentional to give me confidence and get me through the first couple of months. It was much harder running in the park yesterday with all it's inclines but in the future I hope to be able to run ANYWHERE!
I still think it's a miracle and will be forever grateful for this great idea of getting anyone and everyone off that couch...
