Woo! Just finished Week6 Run 3 - was very chuffed to be told that I'm officially a proper runner, even though I knew it was coming. I *didn't* find it easy - even though the rest of week 6 was easy for me. I had to walk off a stitch but after about 30 seconds or so, i then had to run faster to catch up with my running partner, so i think it evens out
Combined with eatign healthier and tracking calories (I LOVE the MyFitnessPal app!) since 27th February I have, as of yesterday, lost 1 STONE! Only 4 more to go (I'm officially obese on the BMI) but it's so exciting to think I'm a 5th of the way through my planned weight loss - this is the lowest weight and the fittest I've been in about 8 years. Well, probably the fittest I've been since i was a young teenager I'd guess, which was nearly 20 years ago.
Thank you to everyone on here for your motivational posts and inspiration - I don't post much but I read everything and come here before and after every run. I'm spreading the word to everyone i know, too! I'm looking forward to being asked how i did it!
