I know everyone must have said this, but I cannot believe what I have achieved with the help of this program and this forum. As a size 16 exercise-phobe, it was turning 50 that did it for me, and gave me the boost to do something outrageous!
I have just done w8r1 and the end is in sight, but also the beginning of running habit, I reckon. I have invested in shoes, capris and tops along the way, and almost feel confident out there on the pavements although I must admit that I do prefer it off-road if the trail is mud free. I have even got techy with a mapping app on my phone along with Laura.
I did try a canal towpath last week, but there is something rather good about conquering a bit of an incline and be rewarded with a lovely decline beyond it which you don't get on a lovely level canal! And as I was on my own, was a bit bothered in case I slipped and fell in!
I have run about 3.5k today in my 28 minutes which is amazing I think! Oh, and hubby is a week and half behind me and feeling good too.
