I've been lurking for a bit since week 4 when I couldn't quite believe I would have to run for 20 minutes the next week and had to come on here to check if it was a mistake!
I am loving the programme and really surprised that it is working for me - so far so good
I wanted to get into running because I'm starting to feel my age (43 as of yesterday) and need to be more proactive to keep up my fitness, I cycle a lot just to get around but I thought I might not be doing enough weight-bearing exercise to ward off osteoporosis and the like. Plus I wanted a free activity I can do outdoors - being in the fresh air does amazing things for my general sanity.
I've got 3 kids aged 12-4 and the beauty of running is it's easy to fit in around them. I love being out first thing in the morning when the day's just starting, on my route down by the river.
I've never imagined being A Runner before but on week 7 and I can already feel the addiction starting...
The support on here is fantastic, thank you all!
