Hello - I’ve just completed the third run on week 4 - I’ve taken my time and did an extra run week 1; had a week off due to being unwell - so not quite following to plan! I’m trying to decide if I struggled with this week and to do it another few days or push on (but a sneaky peak at week 5 has me concerned)
I did the Race for Life after losing weight back in 2006 (I was originally 18stone) now approaching 56yrs and want to enjoy a fitter retirement so back to it!
I did start on the road but as my hips are not good and my physio looked sceptically at me and said avoid uneven surfaces and dropped kerbs, I’ve taken to the treadmill. It’s easier (if not boring) but easier means I’m more likely to stick to it...wish me luck Wednesday Week 5 run 1 🙈
