Week one, run one!

So I started! I managed one foot in front of the other for the full 30 mins and completed day one! I must admit it wasn't as easy going as I thought it would be, although think I need to slow down a bit.

I'm quite bottom heavy and at times it felt as though my fat legs were more like lead weights! Anyway pleased to have got going and look forward to run two.........

(I won't post after every run lol)

  • Brilliant Sarah! First one is the toughie. There are other toughies too, but that first 'orrible one is now behind you. Keep going! :)

  • Fab! You can post after every run if you want. We love it!

  • One foot in front of the other is the way to go. Before graduation, after graduation.......forever. Its what we all do. My legs are like two concrete towers, but it doesn't matter. I just keep plodding along. Don't worry, you're doing just fine.

  • Well done for starting, that's the hardest bit done! And you post away we're a nosey lot x :-D

  • Well done! We love reading all about what everyone else gets up to :-) keep going, getting that first run out the way is a great feeling :-D xxx

  • Yoo Hoo, You've done it. So welcome to the program.

    First run is never an easy one, but it is the start of a long journey for you I hope. Watch out, it often becomes addictive! Happy running.

  • Well done! That first one is a killer! It does get easier, as you get fitter. Keep going! :-)

  • Brill!

    My first was this week & I'm aiming for the second run tonight but this cold wild wind & horizontal rain isn't doing my motivation any good!

    I too generally feel heavy legged & leaden but it can only get better, as they say!

    " This Girl Can" and all that!!
