I am on wk 7 & find it unbelievable that I can run for 25 mins. I am 43 years old & around a stone over weight. I haven't run since I last did cross country at school 30 years ago! I found week 1 ok but I was very sore afterwards - everything ached. I started running on a field to help with joint pain especially my ankles. I was sceptical that the plan would work and was very wary of the jumps from 3 to 5 mins running. Even though it was hard work I could feel myself getting fitter. I feel like a 'proper' runner now and can do 25 mins so I'm almost there. My husband can't believe it. He only downloaded up to week 5 for me at first,thinking I'd give up. So glad I've carried on with it and would recommend it for anyone who has never run. After I finish the plan, I'm hoping to go a bit faster and maybe go further and hope that all of the excess weight comes off.
