Newbie 45 year old mum of 2 (teenagers now urghh) and full time midwife. Have never tried running before but I do walk a lot. Also a wee bit overweight so I'm doing the 5:2 diet as well, going to run on my non fast days. Loved week one. Found today's run a bit more challenging but got through it, struggled with the last one but just gave myself a pep talk and got there. You really do get a buzz from achieving each run, I love reading all your posts, I think it's great everybody supporting each other. X
