I'm 3 stone over weight and haven't run for a few years, but have decided I need to get out there and start running again to lose weight and get the running high again. The first "run" yesterday was the hardest I've ever done. Starting with run walk as I can remember the pitfalls of trying to run too far or too fast too soon. Even trying run 1 walk 90s meant having to take extended walk breaks beyond the schedule but I was trying to keep HR down, as I want to complete the GRN, not sit at home and watch it again.
I know its going to be a long road, but will it be possible to run the whole 13.1 miles in 20 weeks starting from nothing, or should I accept that I'm going to have to do a run walk through the whole race?
