I've just finished week 4. I'm overweight and pretty unfit - I was a proper couch potato before this. It took me 3 weeks to do wk 1, two weeks to do wk 2 but now I'm on track and doing the plan week by week. I run slow - really slow. I can walk faster and my run is more of a shuffle.
I've signed up to do a 5k in October and following this plan I am confident I will be able to do it.
But this morning a friend (the person who inspired me to run. This time last year she was at the same point I am now) has asked me to do the Run to the Beat around Wembley on Sept 13.
But it's a 10k. Is that aiming too high at this point in my running journey? She and another friend will be doing it with me - they both already run 10ks.
