I gave up smoking 3 weeks ago after finding that I couldn't even go for a hike without having to stop every 3 minutes to catch my breath. It was scary and upsetting to think I had let myself get to that point so I have slowly begun to look at my lifestyle and try to make changes where I can.
So today was my first attempt at this program. Thank god for the 90 second rests!! Did anyone else get seriously itchy legs when running for the first time?? It was like this intense itching all over my thighs lol..
I mean realistically I can't see me ever enjoying running, it hurts and I can't breathe properly which is not a pleasant feeling but I'm in it to get healthy not to actually enjoy myself haha. I actually find myself running along thinking 'I hate this, I hate this, I hate this!'.. I must be the worlds most reluctant runner! Lets see how this goes..
