I'm looking for some advice please. I've started on the C25K programme and am currently on Week 4. I'm female, 31, 5 foot 5 and weigh 13 stone 9. Prior to running, I was walking regularly at least once a week up to 8 miles so am not too unfit. Chest wise I find the running ok but my calfs and ankles aren't enjoying it too much.
Two things, I was wondering if it would be possible to run a half marathon next year. I've been very inspired by reading Booktrunk's thread. The Royal Windsor Trail Run Half Marathon really appeals to me but I'm reluctant to sign up as I've a lot of weight to lose and fitness to gain. How much progress do I need to make before I'm safe to put my entry in?
Secondly, what sort of exercise should I be doing on my rest days. I'd like something that will flatten my stomach! I'm not able to go to the gym. We have a rowing machine and the EA active games for the Wii. I don't mind paying out for some equipment for home if it will be beneficial. Having had 3 children, I really want to get fit and slimmer again.
Looking forward to reading your responses.
