Grannies can run too!

Just finished week 2 with much puffing and panting. But hey what do you expect at 60+ and a stone overweight? At least I am trying... I thought I was too old and too unfit, I used to be fit when I was younger and although I walk a lot, I have struggled to maintain fitness and weight for last 5 years. Good news though, I feel good, am fitter and have already lost a couple of pounds. Bring it on!

  • Well done. You are doing really well πŸ‘

  • Well done!

    Us Grannies can run!! But steady and slow is the way to go!

    Have a good Wk 3!


  • Well done you! It is amazing what this programme can do for us you'll be so chuffed by the end of it. Puffing and panting is a rite of passage - that what I tell myself anyway! Good luck.

  • You're doing great! It's amazing how quickly your fitness improves ... even for us more mature runners πŸ˜€

  • Doing great, if I can just capture some of your weight loss I'd be a happy lady...

    Seriously, well done you

  • Thanks everyone, I am going through a bad patch at the moment, your kind words have spurred me on...
