So after struggling with short achilles and shin splints and having to drop out of my local learn to run course, I finally got my legs back and completed Week 1, day 1 of Couch to 5k last night!!
This may seem like a minor achievement to some, but considering last time i tried this a few weeks ago I got 1k down the road and had to hobble back as my legs were on fire, I am on top of the world right now!
Over the last few weeks I have been doing a lot of "power walking" to get my legs (and me!) used to working harder, some days were awful and I was in agony, but others were not so bad.
So my message to anyone trying out running, keep at it, and don't give up! If I stick to plan I will be reaching 5k mid-september, so watch this space for future racing excitement.
