This time last week I was looking for a bit of guidance because I felt too fat and far to unfit to tackle any kind of running. I tried joining a beginners running group which was disastrous and dangerous the first run involved a 2.5k run x 2 around the town and in front of high profile drinking establishments with a more than enthusiastic adjudicating panel.....Oh the shame !!!! :/
I asked a question to the world wide web 'am I too fat to run'?
I desperately want to get back to the feeling of freedom and all the benefits i used to get from running, but feel like I've reached the point of no return.
I was guided to this forum and had such overwhelming response I thought I'd overcome the doubts, dark mornings and frosty day and start (having had a C25K app on my phone for 6 weeks) and actually start!!!
I am now looking forward to week 2
I know this programme is do-able and will get me to where I need to be. It's great to feel that it is achievable.
I have run up to 7 miles in the past but feel so far away from fit that I didn't think it was possible to even contemplate running.
Oh BTW week 1 was good, not easy, I don't believe there is such a thing as an easy run, however, do-able and I love the feeling of being back to it, it has given me such a mood lift :))
