I've started;-0

Week 1, day 1 done.

I didn't really know what to expect, but so many people have been positive about the program, I thought I'd give it a try.

I was so close to doing my usual thing of putting off for another day, but I just went out and did it.

Set out on the 5 warm up walk, and just as arrived at the gates of the park I wanted to run around, it was time for the run - perfect timing;

The park has a track around it which was great. There was one other jogger and lots of dog walkers on the grass.

I found the level just right. It pushed me, but it was doable.

Really loved the music, especially the last track on the warm down or whatever it's called

But I do feel great after it. It's about 15 years since I've done any aerobic exercise, and I really missed the feeling.

At the moment I'm looking forward to the next run - maybe that will change tomorrow.

  • congratulations on getting off the couch! Like Juicy said, do keep the rest days in between. Keep blogging! x

  • Congrats for jumping the hardest hurdle. As Laura will tell you, this program is more mental than physical. Keep believing in yourself and you CAN do it!!!

  • Thank you all for your positive comments:-)

    I'm a little sore today, but it's a nice feeling.

    And I'm looking forward to the Run number 2 tomorrow.

    I really love the music!

  • Well done! Getting started isn't easy. You will find lots of support on here so keep posting.

  • I found the first run reeeeeally hard, almost had to give up at times but it was just about manageable. Then I did the second run of week 1 yesterday and I couldn't believe how much easier it was already! Well done on starting! Hope we can both keep up with it : ) x
