Thought I would start my own training thread to try and help motivate myself and hopefully get some help and encouragement along the way.
I'm 27 year old male (soon to be 28). I used to be super fit until I was 17/18 before giving up every sport I did and ate/drank beer far too much. After my first son was born, I ballooned from 11.5stone to around 18stone.
4 years ago I decided to do something about it albeit on and off over the 4 years. Mostly cycled with a bit of running thrown in now and then. Last September, my 2nd son was born 1 week before I started a full-time degree at Uni. Newborn, Uni and 2hrs commute a day pretty much killed any enthusiasm I had for exercise.
2 months ago I managed to get out again and have caught the running bug badly. I'm running 3 times a week, one session with a running club. Still need to lose a couple of stone ideally
So that's me not that anybody will probably care! My aim is to focus on 5k; especially as I can do the ParkRun for free (great perk being a student and all lol).
I've Done 3 Parkruns the last few weeks and my times have been 27:14, 26:40 and 26:08 respectively.
Short Term Aim: Sub 25mins
Mid Term Aim: Sub 23mins
Long Term Aim (not that i'll get there, but I can dream): Sub 20mins
Hope you haven't fallen asleep while reading my post, but feel free to join in if your goals are similar, you wanna give some pointers or generally wanna poke some fun at a overweight, hairy tattooed bloke
