I'm in my early 40's, about 3 stone over the weight I'd like to be, terribly unfit, hate ANY sort of exercise, and have a tendency to drink far more red wine than I know I should be!
I did research C25K before starting, and, based on other people's experiences, I thought I'd give it a go.
W1R1 was good; a whole lot better than I had expected. Not sure I'd go so far as saying I enjoyed it, but I headed home feeling quite positive and with visions of me being able to run for 30 mins at some point later this year. Then came W1R2. What a disaster. I couldn't complete the first 60 second run, and was crying after the second attempt. I walked for the rest of the time, cursing 'Laura' for her words of encouragement on my iPhone app. Arrived home feeling totally fed up, useless, defeated, and plain stupid for even attempting something like this while being such an unfit couch potato.
So what now? I know I'll get the "keep going" comments, but if I can't even run for 60 seconds, how on earth will I get past W1?! Maybe it's just not for me.
