run 3 of week 9 was around a local lake at 6pm this evening. I can't quite believe it.
It's taken me less than 9 weeks (started on 8 August). I started off doing it by calendar week but when I realised that it was going to start getting dark I switched to every other day without having two days of at one point during the week.
To anyone just starting or struggling, it IS possible. I am a very overweight 40 year old (I've lost almost 4 stone since May but have 4 more to go), I did everything I could to get out of running at school and have avoided exercise ever since. But I can now run for 30 mins.
I can't do 5k yet - I manage just over 3k in 30 mins, but I'll work on my speed. Being 5'1" with very short legs it is a problem!! But ... I CAN RUN FOR 30 MINUTES!!!!
