I'm new to this forum and was hoping for some advice please.
Six months ago I weighed 312 pounds. Since then I have lost 42 pounds and got a LOT fitter (I am now at the gym for over an hour 5 times a week). My aim is to be able to run - I am booked onto a race for life 5k in June. I tried running at Christmas but all I did was hurt my achilles tendons.
My question is - do you think its too soon for me to run? I am terrified of undoing all my hard work but I'm aware that if I don't start running soon I won't be able to run the race for life..
thanks in advance for any help
