After years (probably a good 30) of being unfit, I have finally bitten the bullet and started the Couch to 5K!!!!!!!
However, if it wasn't for the sheer determination and stubbornness of my 9 year old daughter, I would not be able to post this at all.
It was raining hard this morning and the plan was to drop OH off at work and run in local park. However, my daughter only had shorts so we went to Sports Direct to get her some running gear only to find out their card machine was not working and I had no cash on me!!! This was after waiting half an hour for it to open!
My daughter persuaded me to go to the park, despite her in football kit, only to try and synchronise our devices in vain. I nearly threw my iPhone in the pond!!!
After counting to more than 10, we eventually set off on Week One/Run 1 and I can't believe we did it - albeit with my daughter tapping me when to run and walk.
We finished with big grins on our faces and planning for the next instalment!
I have been so self conscious over the years and having zero confidence and never dreamed I would be able to take that first step!
I would like to also thank all of you who replied to my first post many months ago and who gave such good advice and encouragement! I also would like everyone who posts, that their successes and determination have helped enormously and hopefully it will be my turn to help the other new ones!
Watch this space!!!!!!!!!!!
