Hi, my first post. Decided to do this after too long sitting behind a desk and telling myself I just can't run.
Was born with a pectus excavatum deformity which made school cross country very painful so when I left education I just gave up on exercise. Now 49 and staring 50 in the face. So decided to get off my arse.
Weeks one and two were a piece of piss and I was looking forward to the big runs. Got to week 5 run 3 and was psyched up for 20 mins. Wasn't easy but did it and felt satisfied with myself afterwards.
Then this morning went out for week 6 run 1 thinking it'd be a doddle and it nearly killed me. For first time I seriously considered stopping and walking but managed to hold on and complete.
Not looking forward to rest of this week though! But I made a commitment to myself to complete the programme so I'm determined to stick with it. Love the podcast.
Good luck to everyone else.
