I'm 53., over 15st, always battled with my weight and not an exercise 'natural'. Skiing once or twice a year and Zumba once or twice a week is about it. Running? Never!
Why C25K? Rashly decided to do an early bird sign up for Pretty Muddy next year, but then there was the small matter of not being able to run more than a few yards!
First run today with hubby as running buddy. Started off well but soon realised just how unfit I am! Got through all but last 90 sessions, which I had to do as a 'very brisk' walk rather than s jog. Can't believe how pooped I feel - the route I s one I do quite regularly, but a brisk pace and changing just 8 mins to running rather than walking totally changed things.
.Forgot to wear my Fitbit, but in some ways this is probably good s I reckon my heart rate might have worried me ;-).
Hubby said we've taken the first step - but I think this will only really be when we've completed at least the first week and not given up!
Really encouraged by stories of other unfit and very overweight people who are now loving their 5Ks and beyond. maybe there's hope for me yet...
All hints and tips greatly appreciated - already learned that tea and breakfast smoothie 45 mins beforehand doesn't work for me. Too much liquid churning up as I go.
Hoping that this becomes the first of at least 27 (usually much shorter) posts and that I do become a C2K graduate one day
