I have been lurking a lot and reading bits and pieces on peoples experience. I am finding it very motivational just to see people get through this, especially the people who have a lot more challenges than me. I thank you for that! Very very brave.
So I started Week 1 last year in October and with the weather changing and no suitable running clothes for me to keep from freezing the death but I used that as an excuse to not run week 2. I already know the response - "If you ran harder you would soon warm up". Yes that's true but despite my muscles probably being able to handle the run, my hearts and lungs just cant keep up with the demand (I am working on that though).
This week, after buying some long skins (work great for protection against the winter wind and it made a massive difference) I started Week 1 again on Monday. I ran again on Tuesday (I couldn't wait) and have given myself a break for 2 days to recover. My muscles were sore :D. Today is my last run for the week and I cant wait to get out and do it!!
I am a skinny little 5ft whippet with not much muscle mass and a bit too much fat for liking. Skinny does not equal lean unfortunately and I can positively say I am properly as unhealthy as an over weight person on the inside. I lack motivation and energy in life and I can easily sleep for 10+ hours a night.
So this is where is starts...
I start with a biological change and hopefully everything else will return
This has been on my to do list for quite some time but I am mostly doing this because I like the endorphin rush I am somewhat of an adrenaline junky.
I hope to see you with another update later!
P.s I am 24 and a web developer/photographer. (Desk jobs are all I know haha!)
