This is my first post. Thank you to people who have posted on the forum. I have read many of them for support over the last few weeks. The most important lesson I learned from my experience and that of others, is run at a sustainable pace, no matter how slow. I have built up from 11 minutes per K to around 9 minutes on the road and 8 on the treadmill. Did all my app runs outside, running around the village, often at 5am, and joined a gym for the first time (47 years) a week ago. Don't fancy running in the dark, so am now pounding the treadmill with a smile. Unbelievable 12 weeks ago when running for a minute was hard, and working my way up to 5 minutes seemed like a marathon. Didn't know that 10 seconds could seem so long...
