At 20 years old and about 3 stone heavier than when I started at university, I am looking to make big changes. My New Years resolution was to get fit and lose weight, I've lost a stone since then but I want to be fit again and mostly to be able to run, my dad can, he can easily run 10k, so I should be able to right?
I think my biggest fear is being seen red faced, struggling for breath and failing, when looking for some new sports gear I avoid picking the brightly coloured stuff that I love, so I don't draw any attention to myself. I keep trying to work out when will be the quietest time of the day and how is best to start this journey I am so desperate for.
I am astounded by how many determined and wonderful people are on this site, I'm just hoping it will rub off on me! And that I will start my C25K journey on Monday as planned.
Any advice on how to get going or words of wisdom would be hugely appreciated.
