So I've had a bit of a wake up call, as a 46 year old man weighing in at 18 stone i was told by my gp i was pre diabetic.
I have a real love for life but my love for food, wine and beer has finally caught up with me and i was shocked to have had it confirmed to me that my body is pre diabetic and have also been put on ramipril to lower my blood pressure.
This was the motivation I needed to make some positive changes to my lifestyle and a friend of mine suggested C25K.
Week 1 and 2 were tough for someone like me who hasnt run for probably 20 years, but week 3 (3 mins of running) is proving very hard to me as i gasp for breath at the end of each 3 min section.
I'm determined to see this through so i can so 5k at the end of the program but boy its tough!
