Long story, this, so bear with me! Tonight I ran for the first time since I was 13! Older members of this forum might remember me running round my lounge...but I know that didn't really count. The second attempt was about 2 years ago. Joined a gym - went for about 2 months and then winter arrived...too cold. This time is DEFINITELY different (heard that before?) For a start, if I don't sort myself out I'll be dead soon. My motivation is that I've signed all the family up for the Sport Relief Mile (I'll have to tell them soon!) and it's 7 weeks away. I managed 2 x 1 minute runs (at 8.5 kph)in the middle of my walking programme (6kph) so I'm well chuffed. I know it doesn't sound a lot but I hope to increase it as the weeks go by until I can manage that magic mile. Keep it up, there's a good chap!
