So I've started. I'm 48 and about 3 1/2 stone overweight. A friend last week ( not overweight) got a group of 4 of us to give this a go. I was reluctant, felt I would make a fool of myself. The first 'run' I was in a different town from them. The walking section they turned and walked back to me. The second session we found a large field which was better, both on joints and for company. It's our 3rd session today, the running parts are tough who would know a minute was so long...I really struggle but determined to see this through. I need to get fit, watch what I eat and loose the weight! I'll keep you updated with my progress... couch to 5k, I can do it but think it may take me more than 30 minutes at my speed 😉.
