Hi all, I've made numerous attempts at C25K and have given up a lot. This time I'm determined as hell. I'm really struggling with week 3 though going up to 3 minutes. Not only am I really struggling for breath, even when I slow my pace down (I've just quit smoking 2 weeks ago), my legs are in pure pain.
I work a busy job where I spend up to 10 hours on my feet in a busy environment. Anyone got any tips? I'm overweight 14 st 11 lbs (207 lbs) ... although was 16 st 8 lbs (232 lbs) in November and have dropped weight so-far primarily through dieting. I was even heavier in the past but due to anxiety refused to weigh myself (Somewhere in the 270 lbs region though)
Will it get easier as I continue to lose weight (less weight down on my legs)? Should I do some leg strengthening exercises and if so- what are some convenient and easy leg strengthening exercises I could do without the use of gym equipment (I.e. bodyweight training?)
