I'm not new to the site (been lurking for a considerable time now) but I will be new to running......
I have started a few times but then with one thing and another I've not carried on, however this time I plan to start tomorrow and enter a 5k before the end of November.
My questions are:
1 is there any reason why, as someone who is defined as Morbidly Obese, I shouldn't run? My blood pressure is regularly checked by my doctor and is always "normal", I have no other health issues apart from being a fat git. I have tried walking and feel the need to be moving faster (hence the starting running)
2 Is the plan on moving from a self-confessed couch potato to doing a 5k in November realistic - I am aware of the C25K plans out there and even have a book telling me what to do......... I just need a real & honest answer (or five) from people who actually run!!
All advice greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
