So this week I will attempt to stat running for the first time in my life! I've decided to follow the couch to 5k programme and I'm feeling a little daunted, but more so excited at the prospect of actually being able to run at the end of this!
I turned 30 this year and decided I have had enough of feeling overweight and unfit.
My long term goals are to lose weight and to develop a fitter, healthier lifestyle. Ideally i would like to lose around 2 stone to be a healthy weight for my height (5' 3).
This is a plea for anyone who finds themselves in the same boat - starting out for the first time with no prior experience. I would love an online buddy to share experiences with, not neessarily to physically come out running with me, but to help keep me motivated on those days when i'd rather lie on the couch! Hopefully I will be able to give some support and motivation in return.
My friends and family are supportive but since none of them are interested in doing it with me, I'd like to be able to go through the trials of each week with someone who knows what it's like!
