I was the person who when exercise was mentioned found every excuse in the book to reason that it wasn't for me. As for running well that was for people who had too much time on their hands and obviously had nothing better to do. !!
Two weeks ago that all changed. All the girls at work decided to enter the Race for Life 5k and start to get fit. I couldn't be the only one not to join in but being the eldest (45) and most out of shape I started looking for ways to get me to that finish line. Couldnt believe my luck when I found couch to 5k it was as though they knew what I needed. Not sure where the determination has come from, it's as though someone has taken over my brain but I've now completed wk1 -I did the run 4 times as 1st run was spent wheezing bu the fire of the road and have done wk2 run twice now. My only problem is my feet REALLY ache after & the following day. So much so its difficult to walk when i get up the next day & really have to get my joints going again. I did buy "running" trainers but if anyone can give me tips or advice I would appreciate it. Wk2R3 due tomorrow.
Even with these challenges I still feel a little smug at the end of each outing & can't believe I'm actually doing it. I just don't want these problems to stop me in my tracks!
