Hi everyone just thought I would share my experience of doing week one. Last sun I was watching the great north run with my iPad on me knee as usual, my daughter had run the junior north run the day before and my brother and his wife were doing the GNR. I was feeling inspired and typed into google" how do you start running if you are fat and very unfit?" next thing I know I'm downloading c25k on to my phone(I do love a gadget). the first run I thought I was going to die and only managed the first 4 runs, but I told myself it's all good! Nearly didnt make my second run as old sciatica kicked in but managed a full run on weds. Today I ran in the daylight past actual people and instead of being embarrassed at my wobbly shuffle I beamed at everyone I passed! My calfs kill all through and each 60 second run I think I am going to give up and then I've done it! I not sure I can do week 2 yet so I might do a repeat of week one, still I haven't exercised for ages and I'm in my 40s,18 stone with a bad back so all things considering I'm really pleased with myself!
