Just a quick note of encouragement to fellow runners (or those who are thinking about starting) to update you on my progress as a 25 stone male,(lost 4 stones since Christmas) through to Week 3, Day 2, without any repeats or injury problems - touch wood!
It's not easy - nothing like this ever is, but as long as you go at your own pace, you will progress quickly enough. During my Week 3 runs, I am covering around 1.8 miles, which is no world record, but pleases me each morning I go out there and do it!
I can see myself repeating Week 4 a few times to get up to the 'dreaded' Week 5 runs, but that's half the fun of the challenge isn't it?!
Listen to your body, wear the right gear and you'll improve beyond any reasonable doubt in no time.
Stick at it people!
