Hi guys. I'm an overweight man in his fifties trying to get fit and lose a bit of weight for my Daughter's wedding in July. I started my first run on Monday (wearing a big coat and dragging my poor pooch along so it didn't look like I was trying to exercise). I was absolutely exhausted by the third 60 second run and had to walk/run (more like flollop!) through the rest of the session, so I was a little disappointed with myself.
I went ahead with my second run anyway last night, and....... I DID IT.... ALL OF IT!
I even enjoyed the five minute warm down!
No-one is more surprised than me. I was really proud of myself and am really looking forward to Friday night's run. This time, I may even take off the big coat!
Not really asking for help or advice, but just sharing my experience. Maybe to help others that may think that it's a bit too much after failing to compete the first run. Make sure that you do the rest day then get out there. You may be as surprised as me
