Welcome to all my fellow newbies who have decided to shake off the cobwebs and have a go at this running marlarkey.
This thread is intended to offer motivation and support, and to satisfy my curiosity regarding how other people cope with the highs (apparently, they do exist) and lows of pushing our bodies to ridiculous lengths in the name of health.
I am a middle aged mother of 1 teenage boy, overweight, and unfit. My only exercise is walking my 3 big dogs 5 days a week. Other times, I am very happy sitting down. And if its in the evening, preferably with a glass of Red. And perhaps some twiglets.
My husband and son, for a joke, bought me "The Ultimate Guide To Marathon Running" publication for Christmas. I have decided to take it seriously.
Worryingly, I have already entered a 5k Obstacle Run at the end of March, and a 10k run at the beginning of May.
Training starts Monday............
