So I have decided to take up running. I’m a healthy weight and I exercise regularly, however I am doing it in the belief it will help my mental health. I want 2018 to be the year I really make some changes and start helping myself get better instead of wondering why everyone else’s cures aren’t working.
I have just completed the first C25K run and I am honestly shocked, I only managed 4/7 of the 60 second runs and I’m unsure why. I am relatively fit, can use an elliptical trainer for 15-30 minutes without breaking a sweat, I eat well, though recently I’ve been indulging in too much alcohol (another thing I am choosing to change in 2018)
So why am I experiencing chest pains by the 3rd run and feeling physically incapable by the end of the 4th?
When does it get easier? I wasn’t expecting this to be easy but I’m still just a little shocked.
Sorry for the long post.
