I am a person who has always been overweight and decided at the beginining of the year to have a change of lifestyle. During March, I discovered couch to 5k and began the programme. I used a treadmill as I had no confidence to be huffing and puffing in public. I kept to the programme and whilst not having the speed, I focused on the endurance. Last week, I decided to take the plunge and do a 5K run on the road, hills as well. Not only did I do it, I have been improving my time throughout. My last run was 5K in 36 minutes. My purpose of this blog is that I have never run in my life and I was severely obese at the end of January. Although I've always wanted to run I never thought I would. With the help of couch to 5K, I am now jogging in public and I hope my experience will inspire others, particularly on the tough weeks.
