Hi I'm Bob and new here!
Had a health check a year ago and picked up a Couch to 5k leaflet. I followed the App (thank you Laura) and got to running 5k in 7 weeks. Been doing this three times a week ever since and was really chuffed when I broke 29 minutes recently. I've lost a stone and apart from getting fit I've found it very motivating. Ran when I was a teenager at Eton Manor in Leyton (who would have thought it would become part of the London Olympics site!). I gave up sport like a lot of people but I'm back now - I'm 70 in July and really enjoying it.
I've run on my own up to now but did the Sport Relief 3 mile recently and just joined up for the weekly Cambridge Parkrun. I treated myself to a good pair of 'asics' trainers. Compared to my old trainers the new ones are like running on air. Good luck and keep r..u..n..n..i..n..g.... Best wishes Bob
