I was always a couch potato and certainly never a runner but I took it up a little a few years ago, to train and run a 10K for charity. I ran the 10k but stopped running shortly after and put on over 3 stone in weight.
I'm 43, and WAS 15.5 stone but joined a gym 5 weeks ago. I mainly use the rowing machine as a warm up for 15-30mins, then hit the treadmill. I started off jogging 2K then within 2 weeks I was dong 4K, then 5K and today I jogged just over 7K in 42 mins. My breathing rate was controlled, I didnt feel knackered (I felt good), and on the warm down my recovery rate was very quick.
What a buzz!!!!!!
I've also lost half a stone!
Just wanted to tell someone!!!
Great stuff, Sean - it'll become part of your life again in no time.
Well done Sean,keep it going
