About a year ago, I decided to start to do something about losing weight. I didn’t see anything as a problem but now looking back I was eating out wayyy too much (at least once a week) and just generally being a bit shit.
I was doing well at the gym, feeling pretty good and making progress. I then went back to uni in September and I got stuck. I didn’t make the time to exercise, but luckily I never went backwards with my weight loss, I just stuck.
Now I’ve still got a few months of uni left but I’m hoping to be able to make some time to exercise before I start working full time in October.
So when I was in the gym last year (and over the past couple of weeks) I know I can run for 10 minutes without stopping, but then after that it’s a couple of minutes walking then I can’t manage more than 5 minutes running after that, 2 minutes etc.
To begin with I was always self conscious of running on a treadmill in the gym and would just walk, then I’ve finally become comfortable now, then now I’ve done a lot of walking over the past couple of weeks with the nice weather.
I then remembered about these podcasts from a few years back, and I’ve decided to start from the start. So this morning I went out and did week 1, run 1. I felt like I ran a good pace for all 8 minutes and still kept up a good pace for the cool down walk too. Really happy with today, hoping to keep motivated and keep going.
Sorry for the long post but I don’t really have any friends to support me through this 😂 thanks for reading x
