Well where to start?
I packed in smoking in March at the age of 59 and had smoked all my life, I started banging the weight on (big time) and needed to do something about it.
On top of this I have high blood pressure and my cholestral is a little high
I started cto5k and bloody hell it was hard but I stuck it out and with the support and advice of people on here I did it AND on Sept 9th I ran a 5k charity run and raised over £500 and sept 11th I was 60
I now run 5k 3 times a week and am increasing that
With regard to the blood pressure/cholestral I am taking no medication and we are going to monitor results because with the life changes I have made it is felt I may reverse this and to top it I've lost quite a bit of weight
Yes it's hard work BUT the results are worth it keep at it
