Hello I am new to this running thing! Am very overweight- 17.7 stones (!!) and in my warped mind I believe I can run .... Then I go out and realise I can't! I do this with a lot of exercise- it must be some kind of exercise dysmorphia or something. My son has tried taking me out and I honestly, hand on heart cannot jog more than 30 seconds- if that!!! Then I walk fast and try and jog again but it's disastrous. I end up upset at myself and frustrated. Then I give up and refuse to go. BUT have decided to give it another go by myself so no-one can see me crying- haha! So have come to the experts on here for advice. Do other people start like this? Should I go out every day? Is it ok to run less than 30 secs then walk? Any advice really appreciated as I SO want to be able to do this! Thanks!
