Good morning, well done to everyone. I am a complete excercise phob! I avoid it, apart from dog walking. Deciding that, in addition to losing a few pounds, I really should be able to run up and down stairs without feeling myself gasping for breath, it was time to do something about it. Couch to 5k it is!
I have just completed my first week using the phone app with my own music. All okish so far. I am ready for the walking bit just before it's announced, and yesterday, day 3 of week 1 was a bit tougher than I thought it would be. I had a banana shortly before I started and it really gave me heartburn. Needless to say I won't be doing that again.
My question is; does anyone do this on a treadmill? I am using a treadmill at the moment, so I walk at 3.5 and run at 4.1 on an incline of 1. Does this sound ok? I read somewhere that the incline is supposed to be more like outdoor running; no idea if this is the case, it's just what I've read. Thank you.
