So I decided 2.5 weeks ago enough was enough and I needed to do something. I heard about C25K and downloaded the app. I am overweight and attend slimming world but aswell as being overweight I am unfit. Running is my worse nightmare so instead of taking the easy option of swimming (where you dont really do what you set out to do) I decided to have a go - if I can do it anyone can.
Week 1 went OK and I managed to get someone to come out with me at weekends but in the week I am all alone. I found the minute lasted forever but apart from a couple of uphill runs I completed it all
Week 2 has been a different story. Day 1 was a disaster as the heavens opened and I wasnt wearing appropriate clothing - completed 11 mins, Day 2 I got a cramp / knot in my calf and didnt hit the full 1.5 minutes on 3 occasions and Day 3 I went out straight from my bed after no drink or food and felt week and really struggled with the 1.5 minutes (about 7 seconds short all the time) but I completed my longest distance.
I am not going to complete Week 2 again as I feel I have failed.
Has anyone got any advice what is best to eat, drink and focus on to get me over them last seconds - I dont wear a watch (waiting for a fitness tracker bracelet to be delivered) and I carry my phone in my bra so dont watch the app.
I am lapping everyone who hasnt got off the couch which is the only positive at the minute.
Tips would be helpful
