This is my first ever blog anywhere but feel so inspired by everyone on here!!! I would first like to say how amazing this community is, I have been reading all your posts every day and I think it is just fantastic the way so many of us have decided to make positive changes to our lives. Massive thank you to everyone who writes on here - i love hearing how other people are getting on.
I am not nor ever have been 'sporty' and never in a million years thought that I would be able to run for any length of time but I am now completely addicted to this programme. I LOVE it, it makes me feel so good and , dare I say it, healthy! (and just a little smug when I go running at 8am while my partner and kids are still in bed at the weekend!).
I have just had my second child and def need to shift some pounds - I have lost 5kgs so far and want to lose another 5 before I am done. Its very slow going but I dont mind about that, the best thing for me is that I can really see my body changing because of the running - my legs no longer look like fat little dumplings and my stomach is even a little less beach ball shaped!!!
It has surprised me that I have managed to get to this stage and I have found it hard but never impossible, sometimes with a little mini sprint finish when I think that I am an Olympic athlete. But I am NERVOUS about the rest of the programme - all long runs from now on in. I did Wk 6 run 2 this morning and Laura told me I was ready for it but its scary!! It has gone well up until now and I think I am worried about it getting too hard for me and I will get deflated and put off.
I guess I will see what the weekend and the first 25 mins non stop brings -
KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON!!!!!!!
Good luck to everyone and massive encouragement to anyone thinking about starting!!!!
