I'm new here (though I've been lurking for a couple of months after finding out about this programme), and I've decided to start the Couch to 5k course, because, well, quite frankly I'd like to be a hell of a lot fitter than I currently am. Baby steps. I am a little worried though as I've been dealing with chronic pain of unknown cause for the last 18 months too, which definitely hasn't helped with me fitness/general health levels - on bad days I can barely walk, never mind anything else. I'm hoping if I take things slow I'll be ok though - kind of sick of letting the pain dictate what I can and can't do (I'm a Uni student and haven't been able to go out with my friends on nights out etc for most of my time here which sucks >< But that's another story), so I'd like to at least try and do something for me. It may well end up making the pain worse, but I guess I won't know until I try? That's what I keep telling myself anyway.
Anyway, wish me luck! I'm hoping that having written and posted this I'll be forced to see my plan through of starting tomorrow morning, if only to save face ;P
