having managed to sort out the technology to play the podcast at the right speed tonight i went out for my fifth attempt at week one and managed to complete it. that for me is a great accomplishment, my run at the end was little more that a lopsided shuffle and my brisk walking wouldnt have alowed me to overtake a geriatric on a zimmer frame but hey it can only get better and i did it. Another two runs like that and i may finally be up to attemting week 2. woop woop go me. I was wondering as i plodded along at what stage i was going to admit to freinds that i have taken up running as a hobby, i think they may all pass out with shock lol. i will save that little gem of information untill much further into the program when i can actually call myself a runner.
