Hi all. First post so potted introduction - 45 yrs old, overweight, haven't exercised for 25+ yrs... but here I find myself very proud to be at the end of week 5. I was so fearful of this leap up to 20 minutes, my legs feel like lead after 5 but this morning at 6.45am I set out in my usual pitch blackness (less witnesses!), to give it a try... I live in a very exposed coastal location, this morning was an optimistic 2 deg C with 40mph constant winds coming off the water and into my face for the whole of the second half... It wasn't pretty and I was left feeling a little sad that I'm sure I could have walked further in the same time (genuinely there's slow and then there's what I currently manage), but my laboured running efforts kept going throughout the whole time. I can't quite believe I've done it and even more, I can't quite believe I'm looking forward to next week!
You guys are a daily inspiration - thank you.
