Ha! I actually laughed out loud at the audacity with which I call myself a girl! I'm mid-40s and a mum of a 2 1/2 year old gorgeous bundle of energy! As she's getting more and more active I've been finding it harder to keep up. I work shifts (2 x 12 hour shifts a week - days & nights) in the local maternity unit and am very easily tempted by the chocolates, cakes and biscuits left by our grateful parents. This has led to me weighing the most I ever have (even more than when I was 9 months pregnant) and being seriously unfit.
Add to that the fact that I've just been told there's a family history of high blood pressure, and I find myself signing up for gym membership then the C25k!
I started the programme this week and have just completed my second run. It was after a leg-intensive pilates class, so I'm feeling a bit heavy-legged, but still feel very good nonetheless.
I browsed through the forum last night but don't see anyone else who's doing this programme on the treadmill. I hope you don't all talk about me behind my back as a "pretender" who's just not putting in the same amount of effort!! I've chosen to start in the gym with a pal so we can combine classes with the running programme. Our intention is to hit the streets when we can run for 30 minutes. We live by the beach, so the incentive's there.
So anyway, that's enough rabbitting on from me! Just wanted to say hello!
