Quick intro. I was an overweight smoking unfit middle age man with a large belly so at Christmas I was determined to do something about it. Stopped smoking on 21st Dec and started walking twice a week for 30 mins. That became a habit and went to 4 days then 5.
I have now lost 2 stone been non smoker for 2 months and started to do the odd jog instead of walk. Didn't know this kind of forum existed. I have today just done 4k in 30:06. Not sure whether that good or bad but seems to average 4k in 30-34 mins. I get sore shins alot
Hope to increase to the magical 5k so will see how this goes. Will have a good read of the other posts for tips and advice.
