So I thought I was the typical couch potato, and for various reasons decided it was time to do something about it. Downloaded the app a week and a half ago, and set off to see how I got on.
How wrong was I. Turns out I was much less fit than the typical couch potato! I only managed 2½ of the one minute runs after the warm-up, and I was dead.
Just goes to show that getting started is the biggest hurdle. Two days later I managed 4 runs, then 5, 6, and then finally I managed the full 8! Today I've just completed W1R2, and can't quite believe it.
I'm nervous about W2, but I've reassured myself that I could always repeat one of the W1 runs if I need to - I guess on Wednesday I'll find out!!
So, the message is if I can get started, so can anybody. I've not quite got the stage where I'm enjoying the running especially, but I am enjoying the sense of achievement having completed the session, and the feeling that tomorrow is a day off!!
