My name is Short Round Stan,and I don't want to be round no more.I'm 42 in April and sick to death of being over weight so as I'm starting a new job so I thought I'd start exercising as it will help me relax after learning a new job(and help me lose this weight)
I'm about 4 stone overweight,so I know I'm going to start off slow.I'm going to do 2 weeks walking 3 times for 30 minutes before starting a couch to 5k plan.I've started weight watchers on line so thats the diet sorted,and I'm off to the sweatshop in Reading to sort out some shoes.So down to the questions
1) I've got very tight hamstrings from playing rugby for years-any advice on how to deal with this?
2) Sometimes a get pains in my shins if I do alot of walking at speed(although this doesn't hapen all the time) any advice for dealing with this please?
Any other advice you guys think I need? I have started other types of exercise and never followed it up,this can't be allowed to happen this time,this weight needs to come off,and I want to open up new opportunities for myself and this seems a good way.
Thanks in advance
