Just completed w9r3!!! Me!! Overweight and 50 in December. I actually cannot believe it. I have never been sporty or fit. But to everyone out there who is struggling it can be done. I remember w1r1 came back defeated on my first attempt but somehow went back out two days later and completed it. I did repeat the step up to 20 mins three times but eventually I completed that. I am only covering 4.3k at the moment and that includes my warm up but I can run continously for 30 mins.
My plan is to keep going and get to 5k. I have entered race for life in July and plan to do a few park run's when I can complete 5k. I actually feel as if this is achievable. Which is truly amazing to me.
I have more energy and feel great, so great I want to keep going.
I guess the point of this post is to encourage everyone else. This plan really does work. It's not easy but it's manageable and it's worth the hardwork.
I am now the proud owner of 'running clothes' Just need me graduation badge to go with them.
Good luck to all
