Made it through week 1 and still breathing


I finished week 1. As an asthmatic I never thought I could run. I have been reading post from other asthmatic s and decided to try. It wasn't pretty and one of the days the humidity got to me and I could only do 45 seconds each rep but I didn't quit. Thanks for all the people who take the time to post. It's encouraging.

Welcome to the forum and well done on getting started.

This guide to the plan is essential reading

Well done and welcome! Personally I found week 1 the hardest (now on week 9). It gets easier as you get stronger. Remember to take it really slowly while you run and you’ll get there. Good luck!
