A little back ground, I'm 25 years old and started piling on the weight at around age 16/17 due to family troubles. I was quite fit before that, I used to skateboard miles to a skate park with friends, spend hours there skating, and then skate back. I ran a 5K when I was 14/15 on a whim with not training at all, I signed up on the day. I ran it in 32 minutes. My goal would be to get back to that level of fitness.
Right now I weigh a whopping 159.5 kg 0.5kg down from last week, I'm 180cm so I'm thinking my goal weight should be 80 kg (ish). At this weight can I realistically expect to be able to start running? I've looking at the c25k and I have to admit I think week one would be quite a struggle. I think I could manage to run 60 seconds (very slowly) but I'm not sure I could manage it 8 times in 20 minutes. Perhaps I should create a week 0 with running 30 seconds?
I'm in generally OK health besides my weight, apart from having a kidney stone, which I'm waiting to be zapped (they run in my family).
Any input or advice would be greatly welcomed.
