I've never written a blog or kept a diary before but somehow I think I'm going to need to do this to keep myself motivated. I've never done sport either - I used to take as long as possible in the changing room at school so as to shorten the actual lesson time. PE teachers just laughed when I couldn't run. So here I am, 62, over weight and slightly amazed at my own audacity in thinking I can do this programme.
W1R1 was hard but it got easier. W2R1 last night went ok until the last run, which was completed through willpower. I then felt thoroughly sick. Also whereas on the rest days of W1 I actually felt good, today I just feel tired and I have craved something sweet to eat. I had to force myself to do my regular static bike ride and it took 40 minutes to cycle the distance that usually takes 30.
I think it might be a good idea to take 2 rest days, but worry that that is a bit of a cop out and that if I miss a day I'll find it harder to motivate myself to do R2.
