Re: Week 1 Run 1 terror

I well and truly fell off the wagon after going to Tenerife for a week at the beginning of February - have barely been to the gym and really feeling and noticing the weight gain.

Re: Week 1 Run 1 terror

First run done and it wasn't bad at all - kept the treadmill at a 2.5 incline, walked at a speed of 5.3 and "ran" at 6.5. Red faced but feeling really pleased. Woo! :P

Week 1 Run 1 terror

I'm restarting the program (last attempted it in September 2010) and this time I'm really scared. I am heavier now and doing it in the gym where I always feel like I'm the fat one pounding the treadmill. I'm over 12stone and 5'7 and feeling pretty rubbish about myself so really hope I can do this an...
