I am extremely lucky to have a high metabolism so I don't have to exercise to keep my weight down but I recently went on holiday with my 65 year old Dad and discovered he is far fitter than me! We walked up a hill and I had to stop twice on the way up as my legs were burning and I felt like a lung had collapsed.....my Dad hadn't even broken a sweat!
I have very little energy, despite eating well, and this is the reason I want to do this as so many people on here say they have more energy.
I work full time and study in the evening so time is difficult but I can't keep making excuses. Who can't spare ten minutes?! I also think some exercise would help clear my mind after studying.
Having read a few posts I can see you're all a supportive bunch so please feel free to get in touch with any advice or if any other beginners see this we can go on this new scary journey together!
I plan to do my first run after work tomorrow
