I have to agree. Went to my first ever 'race' since school at Banstead Park and managed the 5K without stopping as I was running with others. Great fun and and a great boost. 3 days later, have just done 10K. 6 months ago, I would be lucky to run a kilometre without stopping. Mesage here is to start slowly, keep at it, go back if you falter and you will get there. I am knocking 50 and 16st.
