Hi all, I've just discovered this community, having done the first 5 weeks of Couch 2 5K. I'm 37 and completely new to regular proper sweaty exercise, though I do walk a fair bit so wasn't completely starting from the couch. I've managed up to w6r2 without repeating any or cheating, and I'm quite proud of myself. Haven't been on the scales but my clothes are fitting a bit better. Before I started this I was the heaviest I've been as an adult - having a baby 3 years ago has played havoc with various things. I have about 4 stone to lose but this is not my main reason for running.
Loads of people on here talk about Laura - I've been using RunDouble, which I think is along similar lines but maybe with less talking.
And I've been loving it! I use a Spotify running playlist open.spotify.com/user/timeo... with the type of music I never usually listen to (I'm more of a classical girl usually) and the RunDouble announcements come in over the top.
It's been great to read others' experiences
