After thinking about getting more exercise for ages, sitting down office job, I have finally bitten the bullet as they say and started the Couch to 5K proper this morning so Week 1 Run 1 done.
Had the first chew on Saturday by going to a local shop that deals with running. They were a good source of advice and allowed me to try proper running footwear rather than just trainers. Also pick up a pair of end of line shoes for £55 that felt comfortable, suprising how different each variety feels .
I already walk about 10-12 km a day just getting to and from work. Being an early morning person I did mine in a recreational field that is just under 5 minutes away (ideal for that warm and cool down walk). Nice and quiet at 5am.
Using the podcast and Strava to track progress as well as my MTB riding that I try and get to do as well.
Lets see how I get on over the coming weeks
