Hi, I think the last time I did any sort of running was 30 years ago if I'm honest. I'm an overweight 50-odd year old and have started the Cto5K challenge this week. My aim is to get fit, lose weight and get back out there again. I've spent far too many years sat at a desk behind a computer trying to earn a living. Now I want to do some living! I need to lose weight and I am really keen but nervous at starting this challenge. I am at Wk1 Run 2. And... don't laugh but because I feel self-conscious about running and people I know spotting me..... I have started my two runs inside my living room!!!! The thought behind that being, that if I was no good at it, then no one needed to know that I failed or laughed at me when they saw me wobbling about. After the third run, I may well venture outside because it is a bit boring running around the living room to be honest plus the dog thinks I've flipped!!!
