I’m new on here but 2 weeks ago I found out I had been accepted for The London Marathon - felt overjoyed and terrified at the same time. Could I really become a couch potato to finishing a marathon in 28 weeks. So where do I start. I’m an unfit , fat 51 year old and I don’t do any exercise so needed to start from scratch. Tried couch potato 3-4 years ago but didn’t manage to finish it due to an injury. So this time got some proper running shoes from start.
So decided I would try and push myself in first few weeks and go out 4 times a week. Hence today I’ve just started my 3rd week training but I’ve just completed wk 3 of C25K.
I know to most people it doesn’t seem a lot of running but to think 2 weeks ago it was a push to run for a minute. Still a way to go but loving this plan and following the app. It’s a huge help
