This program is amazing!! I came across it by chance while speaking to a friend of mine. It has been my dream to run continuously for 30 mins for years. Unfortunately I was a big smoker and binge drinker in my teens and twenties and my health suffered. I gave up smoking three year ago when I hit 30 and now only drink occasionally, however, whatever I did, I just could not run for more than a few minutes.Last year I started interval running with my boyfriend but my fitness just did not improve and I got fed up. Looking back now I realise that the pace was just too much.
Since starting this 6 weeks ago my running has improved so much - I just did week 6 run two today and it was my best yet. In fact i felt so good that I carried on running for an extra two minutes after laura told me to stop so i managed 10 minues and was hardly out of breath. Now I am really looking forward to (although very scared) about run 3, the dreaded 20 minutes which I will run on Wednesday.
My only issue is, I have been running every other day for the last two weeks and have been cycling on my so called rest days. On top of that I have been eating only 1500 calories a day since I put on half a stone on my recent holiday. The annoying thing is I have not lost a single pound during that time....I am feeling so annoyed!!! Does anybody have any ideas as to why??? or has anyone else had a similar experience. I really want to lose a stone (from 11 to 10) but at this rate it is never going to happen!!
