Beginners Luck

I am beginning the program from Monday this coming week. In my early twenties but i have not done any running since i ceased playing football a few years back. I go to the gym 5 times a week but more for weight lifting.

I am trying to get back in to football so hopefully this will help as i cant run for long periods without getting out of breath very quickly.

I will keep you all posted on how i get on!!

Good luck, I look forward to reading about your progress


You'll be a rock star. The program builds nice and slowly. Great for getting in the habit of running, and at a pace that generally avoids injury.


It's a fabulous programme and has transformed thousands of us from unfit breathless wheezers into running goddesses and gods 😉 Good luck for Monday. Run slowly, take your rest days and stretch.
