Well I have decided to embark on the Couch 2 5k app!!! Eekkk, as someone who is at least 4 stone over weight I have decided I need to get fit, especially since I high blood pressure. This is hereditary unfortunately, however, exercise would always help keep it lower.
Apart from winning the school 100meter races (this was some 15 years ago now!) I have never been a runner. I've always looked and thought 'what a lovely hobby, the fresh air, music on and you're good to go' but I have always struggled to run a lengthy distance.
So i have decide to give this app a go! I am now on week 2 day 2. When I first started week 1 I remember looking down to check how many seconds I had left until I had completed my first ONE minute run!! I had 13 seconds to go and was wishing it second along!! Last night I was panicking at the thought of running a while 90 seconds and didn't think I would be able to do it without stopping. Wow, I was so impressed with myself, I did each 90 seconds with no stopping and it felt good!! So good in fact that I have joint this forum to discuss and read people's achievements.
I am really hoping I can stick to it as it does seem achieveable. I would be so proud of myself!!
Well done all you other runners out there.
