Welcome shandyspencer and well done on taking this hugely positive step to improve your health and well being ! I have found this forum absolutely incredible in terms of support, advice, encouragement and loads of laughs too. I am now on week 8 and never ever would have believed I would get this far - please keep posting and the very best of luck to you !🍀🍀🍀
Welcome to the fold, here's to a future of running! I started out two months ago with barely being able to manage 30 seconds and am about to start on week 9 tomorrow, I can hardly believe it myself! It really is a mood lifter and stress reliever all in one. Highly recommended! Good luck and let us know how it goes.
I put the volume on the podcast/music loud enough so I can't hear myself breathe - just the sound of me huffing and puffing makes me feel exhausted. It does get easier - you think it won't, and then it does. I still think that first week is physically and mentally the hardest. I've always been awful at running - no stamina at all, and I honestly can't believe how this program has turned me into someone who can go for a 30 minute run and enjoy it. Best wishes to you - just get yourself out the door on your run days and don't have any expectations about the quality of the run - just getting out there is doing you the world of good❤️
