I would like to say hi to everyone, over the last few days I have been reading posts on the forums and have taken the plunge to sign up. I am new to excerise in general, only about 6-8 weeks ago I started going out for so called jogs with a friend as we decided to sign up to do a 5k. Well our jogs were more of walks and talks with about 5 minutes if that of jogging over a 3 mile walk. We did do our race and came in at 40mins I know not good but, we were not last and we did finish it, even though we did walk a part of it. On the whole we did more jogging than all of our so called training lol.
The thing is, now I have done the race I feel that I want to carry on and follow a proper c25k plan, I actually enjoy getting out there, yes I have many aches and pains but with the slight changes I already have noticed, body shape etc its all worth it. This week I have done two small attempts 1 mile distance run/walk with my young son, today managed to jog full half mile (very slowly) a few seconds rest then back, did have to walk for a short while but already doing more than I have before.
Can anyone tell me anything about the Gymboss minimax as I was thinking of getting one to help with timing could by a watch but at the moment its early days so thought a Gymboss might be the best for now, any advice would be great. Look forward to starting to chat to you all.
