will i cope
Same position almost. I am 66 and have had 4 years off from running which I only took up for about a year anyway. I managed to put on a lot of weight in 4 years and about 4 weeks ago I suddenly realised exactly how unfit I was. I started going to the gym and last week found a beginners running group. It has been going for about 6 months and I am now the slowest but everyone is so nice it has not put me off. The main problem is that I can walk for miles but run for about 1 minute then need to walk for a bit. I am told it will get better and I am determined to be able to run for 5k my aim for the next 3 months.
