Completed my week 1 run 1 today. Tried to do this a few years back and gave up due to hip pain but after facing a milestone bday last year( 50th) felt I needed to push myself out of comfort zone. I’m going to try harder this time 😄

Well done, i'm still relatively new (starting week 3 tomorrow) but main thing i've learned, did and it worked - was go slow if its getting sore.
Good luck with the rest of the programme - this chat works wonders for motivation.
Well done for making a start. The same milestone birthday also spurred me into action! Good luck, you can do it!
Ditto!! I did my first run today too. Good luck with the coming weeks!
And to you too! Have you ran before?
A couple of years ago I did but I went too hard too quick. Ran almost every day (not far or fast)for about 8 weeks and got shin splints! 😔 Gonna take it much easier this time!
