Have just done week one run one!! Very proud of myself - I know it's a long way to go yet but usually I'd have stayed in bed at that time on a Sunday morning!

Tip for other newbies - sort the podcast ready to play before leaving the house so you don't stand in the street feeling embarrassed in running clothes and find podcast doesn't work(said it wasn't available at this time) and you don't have reading glasses with you to see the phone properly!!

    Well done for getting out there.

    I've had a fair few phone and podcast nightmares! Learning how to play/ pause/ fast forward/ rewind etc. is handy too. I had to do a week 4 run just off of the time on my watch- blooming awful!

    Looking forward to your progress xx

  • Well done on getting started. I've had my fair share of 'technical issues' over the weeks. Trick is not to let them put you off and carry on regardless. Blummin frustrating though. Good luck x

  • You've started. There'll be no turning back now. Well done you :)
