In Feb this year I was overweight and at risk of going back onto meds for my diabetes.
I started on a diet (healthy eating) and exercise programme of Zumba, swimming and walking. I lost 2 stone and felt great, but I got a rotator cuff injury that ruled out swimming. I decided to go for C25K instead. I have never been a runner and I have neuropathy in my feet, which means they are numb/painful and it impacts my balance.
So I invested in good trainers and 11 weeks later (2 week holiday break) I am another 10lbs down, my blood sugars are so good that I am no longer diabetic if I was tested (Doctor chuffed to bits)AND I ran for 4.5 k in 30 min today. I am 63 years old and feel fabulous
Planning to meet my secondary goal of completing a park run before Christmas with my pal who completed C25k last year and inspired me to do it
It’s a great programme
Not sure how to get my graduate badge?
