On the 1st of April I decided i had had enough of being over weight and out of shape, I had been sorting out some old clothes and came across my old martial arts gear and just hung my head in shame!!. So it was down to the pharmacy for some nicotine replacement and the sports shop for some running shoes. I was following the C25K program and was half way through week three but an old injury from the martial arts reared its ugly head (damaged veins, chronic venus insufficiency) and my right leg went a bit mental for a while! a few days rest and it felt OK so back out one the road, took it down a notch and retried week 2, then on day 3 my right knee decided it was going to double in size and refuse to move with out causing shooting pains through my leg!! I got really addicted to running in the short time i was doing and really want to get out there again but feel a little deflated and some what past it!! And advice and tips to get me back on endorphins highway would be appreciated. Heads up about me is that I am 6' 2" and weight 18st! a fair bit of muscle but a lot of fat too!!!
