Today was my first run without Laura. It was strange not having her periodic bursts of encouragement. I am so used to my route the various milestones, a bridge here a pub there, helped to gauge how I was getting on. I was taking it easy because I am still recovering from an operation but it doesn’t seem to make any difference to the speed. So this is my life, every other day for the next couple of months a 15 minute warm up walk, 30 minute run & 15 minute cool down walk. Then after Christmas I shall start training for my first 10k in May.
In April this year I weighed 99kg. With a combination of diet and exercise I now weigh 75kg and am fitter than I have been for more than 30 years. What a fantastic programme this is. I could not recommend it more fully to anyone who is thinking of trying it. You can do it, we all can do it.
