Just completed week 3 run 1 and feeling great. As a 45 yr old classed as ' 'obese' I really didn't think I would A) be able to do this & B)get the bug! A few of the girls at work have signed up to do the race for life in July and I so didn't want to be the fat one at the back crawling over the finish line. I was surfing the web & came accross the C25K pod casts . So diet started beginning of feb - 1200 calories per day & program started the beginning of march, slow start I ended u doing the week 1 run 4 times then the week 2 run 5 times with rest days in between. So it is going to take longer than the 9 weeks to get me to 5k but I am starting to look forward to my runs and hopefully I'll be able to manage the 5k in July if the improvement continues week to week there will be no problem. Also on the weight front I have now lost 13lb and am convinced the running is helping. Thank you to everyone on the forum your posts are keeping me focused! Bring on the next run on Monday
