Hi all, long time lurker wanting to share my story.
About 10 weeks ago I was signed off work with stress, and I'm still some way off returning (currently trying to find another job).
I made it my mission to get healthy and this led me to couch to 5k. Currently on week 8 with run 2 tomorrow (done every run gremlin free!) and currently running around 4.5k in 28 minutes so closing in on my aim of 5k in 30 minutes!Planning my first Parkrun on graduation on September 16th then consolidation then I have a 10k training plan for a race in April via podrunner, while continuing to do Parkrun every other week. I'm also doing KettleBell, aerobics and badminton on 'off days', as well as cutting back on booze and eating healthier! Lost half a stone since starting- onwards and upwards and good luck to everyone on their journey!
