I love this forum. No negativity at all. I started looking at it a few weeks ago when my younger son started his just giving page for his London Marathon (first one). My Dad is a lifelong runner and was doing marathons in his fifties and sixties so I was starting to feel like a lost generation, but had a fear of running after joining a gym about five years ago, doing to much too soon on the treadmill and ending up with tendonitis! Anyway, since then, has just been Pilates, yoga and dog walking at the weekends( husband does it weekdays). I work as a Primary Headteacher and we have been doing lots of work with our children about Growth Mindsets and started to think I should get one myself, so here I am: week four, day one. Starting to think I may actually be able to run and is just my head needs to believe my legs can do it. Mind you is on the treadmill at the moment, but planning to head outside once I get to longer distances!
