I'm 63 and have never run in my life and was beginning to feel sorry for myself - aches and pains, stiff joints and no stamina.I am an ex- heavy smoker but gave up 7 years ago. My daughter inspired me by completing "Couch to 5k" herself. I am now on week 7 running for 25 mins non-stop. My recovery time is pretty good too.
I can't believe it - I feel great and though it's no walk in the park it is certainly achievable by almost anyone.
Daughter and I are planning to run my first 30 minutes run together.
