Let’s Do This!

Started at 18st 10lbs..... heaviest ever!

Just turned 40 this year, and partied a bit too hard!

Stopped at the start of July tho, and now looking to nail the Couch to 5K.

Into Week 2, started last night, did the walk/run, then did half of it again on the stopwatch as I felt ok. After the very first run last week, the legs were heavy for a couple of days, but feeling fresh now.

Started the McReady Diet the other week too, and knocked of 7lbs in a week and a half, so all going good!

Well done you - that’s brilliant!! It’s definitely even more of a challenge when you’re carrying a bit of extra weight. Onwards and downwards!! X

Cheers.

Yeah, not easy. I’ve always went to the gym, so usually generally fit. But the treadmill is a lot easier than pounding the streets!

Still tho, as much as it’s not easy when your actually out, I look forward to getting out! So I’ll keep plugging away.

Hard to picture myself hitting the 5K, but I’m determined so that’s half the battle!

What a great start! Good for you 👍🏻

Great start. Don't fixate on the 5k thing though, just aim for 30 mins of slownon-stop running. The 5k comes later and takes longer than 30mins for 90% of graduates. Enjoy the programme - it's a good 'un!
