I'm mid 40's, overweight by a few stones and very unfit. A month ago I started watching what I eat and going to the gym followed by a swim 3x a week. My fitness has been improving, especially my recovery time. I've been thinking I'd like to start c25k when I'd lost a lot more weight but while browsing the posts here this morning I thought why wait! On with the gym clothes, off to the park and got underway.
My goal was to complete 3 of the runs and build up from there, but I completed 6! Also not so much runs but very slow jogs. With much sweating and heavy breathing. The last two runs would have been uphill and I was already past it, my brisk walk had reduced to a heavy plod, heavy legs and general weariness. However its a start and better than I expected 😀
Anyone else just starting out?
