Ha ha Shona, yes I think I maybe mad, so went out this morning, as I said earlier I havn't done any exercise in a very long time, lasted 45 mins of walking and running, thanks for the reply Jandalee, and it was always going to be a short run lol for now anyway. Had water and an energy drink before I went. Wasn't too bad, but god do I have a Long way to go. I could go after work but would have to go home first, I don't mind the early mornings i'm more of a morning person anyway.
hiShona and Jindalee, thanks for the advice, gnr is a half marathon, apparently its the biggest in the country so ill be in good company, a couple of the lads I work with are doing it too so there's some feirce rivalry starting, all friendly though.
My training starts early monday morning, I was goung to start on a tredmill down the gym but have decided against that and am heading out doors, I want to get used to running out doors asap.
I've checked out the c25k and that seems as good a place to start as any also have an app for my phone to monitor things.
Driving to work this morning I noticed so many people out running and it really motivated me, made me think what a better way to be spending a couple of hours first thing in the morning than sleeping in or worse still nursing a hang over.
I'll keep updating things here to log my progress.
