Hi all from sunny Oz! I've hijacked the NHS as this site and the podcasts are so good! I've spent two weeks doing the wk1 runs and today I did the first of my wk2 runs.
It was hard but not impossible. I thought on the second last 90sec run that I was going to stop but I kept going and then was pleasantly surprised when the last one seemed easier...go figure
I've started as I am very unfit and overweight (80kg in my terms, not sure what that is in stones) and want to be able to confidently get out more and enjoy life with the husband and kids. I hate feeling this sense of fear and loathing when they all want to go for a bike ride or play some basketball........
I haven't brought nay new gear. My old runners seem to be working ok and I just wear bike shorts and one of hubbys big T-shirts. Its a bit of a disguise given I feel highly self conscious as I huff and puff along!
Anyway, I've got very little social support (consequence of moving and then adopting a hermit lifestyle) so while I'm hopeful that will change, in the interim I'm going to use this blog site for my inspiration and also to vent if needed!
Goodluck to all and fingers crossed wk2 keeps going ok!
