I thought i would post here as a new runner who is working on the C25K programme to maybe offer some encouragement to others and to blow my own trumpet a little at the same time.
If you search for my posts you will see that I asked for alot of advice at the turn of the year and had not run for almost 20 years. Weighing 195lbs I was heavy, unfit and daunted by running a 10k that I am training for.
Well I am now 2 months into the programme and have stuck to it religiously. My first run was like 3 minutes and I had to go home with shin splints. I am now starting week 8 and have tonight run for 28 minutes + 10 minutes walking.
Having lost 18lbs in weight by eating sensibly (mainly tuna and rice, salad and veg) I feel great.
What I am trying to say is all us fat, overweight people, who are unfit do have a future if you put the effort in.
Get to it folks and dont give up, it will come good and you will feel great.
My first race ever will be 10k in Manchester, and whilst i dont expect to be fast I know in my own heart I will complete it without walking if i stick to my plan.
RUN RUN RUN.
