Have finally finished week 1. I've done the first couple of runs a few times, but never got any further, mainly because I have not been good at building up a routine. I have done Race for Life for the last 2 years - I ran/walked both times but trained beforehand using a Beginner to 5K programme from Runners World - I never actually made it to the end of the programme! What I like about the Couch to 5K podcast is that there is no clock watching so I feel like the time goes more quickly.
I am also trying to lose weight - have lost 2 stone so far and have around 3 more to go. I'm hoping to make running a habit for life. Fingers crossed.
