The last 9 weeks have seen a big change for me, I've lost about 16 lbs, I'm more confident and I'm a runner! I've done a park run in london and eastbourne both under half hour 5k the second one was timed at 26:38! Just come in from my last run using the same route i started on in week one, just an extended one! and after being on the treadmill for the past month i got a real sense of achievement completing this route on my last run.
Ive entered two 10k runs! friction forrest and the British 10k both pretty soon. I cannot recommend these podcasts highly enough for anyone considering taking up exercise.
I havent quit smoking yet but i do have a real hatred for it now as i know its the only thing getting in my way from being a half decent runner! only a matter of time.
Off to get my graduate badge!
