I know I'm incredibly unfit, but it only became clear just how unfit I am when I tried cycling the 1.5miles from my house to work and almost cried 2mins in. I decided then and there that it was about time I did some real exercise. I was introduced to a program similar to C25K a few months ago but instead of a podcast it was just instructions on a piece of paper and I had to keep glancing at my watch while running/walking which naturally made me feel more stressed than anything. Then I found the C25K podcasts and started running last week.
I found Week1 a lot easier than I was expecting -- i.e. I was quite tired but I wasn't close to fainting or dying which was the case with the previous program. So I decided to keep going even though I run week1 in 10 days rather than a week due to time constraints. I've just come back from the first run of week2. I definitely struggled a lot more but I did battle through it in the end. I'm afraid my motivation will run out any day now. So I thought I'd ask if you guys have any tips of how to keep it up?
