I did it (albeit super slowly!).
I’m a terrible runner, always have been. I’m under no illusions I look graceful or inspiring as I trundle my way round the park. That’s OK though
I have always enjoyed strength training and (now to be big headed) I’m really good at it. I have a PT who I see three times a week and genuinely love it!! Before I had my son (now 20 months) I tried to get into running. I did the devil mud run which was 5k and a lot of obstacles. I say “did it” = I walked a lot, cried a lot and threw (lots) of few strops with my husband encouraging me. The sense of achievement at completing it (and the snickers bar) was amazing. Then pregnancy and baby came and I’ve been scared to try getting into running again....until now. My mum tum makes me want to shift this for my health as well as feel good factor when I look in the mirror!
I am chuffed I just did w1r1 but found it so hard. I can’t quite imagine being ready to move onto more running after only doing that two more times?!?! Reading all these threads it seems realistic, or perhaps I’m just THAT unfit it will take me longer to progress.
For anyone super unfit like me, did it take you longer to progress? Did you feel like I do and that it feels a bit impossible/unrealistic?
Thanks for the advice!!
