I graduated 2 years ago and was so proud of myself. I'd lost over a stone in weight and felt the fittest I had in years. I was amazed at what I had achieved, as I'd never run in my life and the thought of it filled me with utter dread. But I did it !!! I even went on to do the 5k+ runs. Laura was brilliant!
Then I lost my way - changes at work, dark nights, bad weather, the joys of keeping a house together, etc., and so I dipped in and out of running, as and when I could, eventually I stopped.
Two years on, the weight is back on, I'm older and greyer, but know that I must get back out there and feel that sense of achievement and buzz, just I did when I completed my final Week 9 run.
So ...... this week, I started on Week 5 and I struggled. I did have the dog with me and although she was off the lead for some of it, there were others when I was trying to get her back on the lead and she was far more interested in anything than me!! So a few more stops than intended.
I found it hard ... so do I start right at the beginning again, or do I try week 4?
I would really appreciate any help and support with this. I really have struggled to get back to it, and just putting my running shoes on is quite an achievement.
