36yr old male. Gone from being able to cycle 120+ miles a week in my younger adult life to not being able to kick a ball around for ten minutes in the park with my two boys without feeling like my heart is going to burst through my chest!
Saw someone on YouTube (lollujo) doing this and it has given me the motivation to give it a go myself. Seems hard enough to accomplish without being so hard it's unattainable.
Downloaded the app Couch to 5k from the NHS on Saturday.
My first run was today (24 July 2017) W1 R1 completed 😭 I am so unfit!!! But it felt good to know I had done it. Thanks to Jo Whiley telling me not to give up.
A glass of water and a banana when I got back. A hot shower and I'm looking forward to doing my 2nd run on Wednesday.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Motivation and helpful tips all welcome 👍🏻 I am hoping to post little short posts about my runs on here to give me a little extra motivation to keep at it.
Who knows if your local I may see you around or keep a look out for a bloke who looks out of his depth at running who knows it may be me..
Any questions? Feel free to ask.
Happy running all 😁
