My name is Christine, I am 42 and just started get running day 1 today. I am from Cork Ireland.
I really enjoyed today Day 1 Wk1.
With the help of this forum I will keep up the training.
I hope we can motivate and encourage each other,. Is there anyone else starting off like me.?
I did a 5k last Saturday. I wasn't inclined to but my friend encouraged me. I had planned on doing it at the end of the couch to 5k training. My time was 40 minutes as I walked a lot of it. (My breathing gave me truoble) I felt a bit demotivated as 104 people ran in the 5k and I came 102nd People much older than me are so much fitter
Today when I did the day 1 of couch to 5k I had trouble with my breathing. A passer by said to me 'I suppose everyone has to start somewhere'
I really want to stay positive.
I met a neighbour today and she laughed when she heard I came 102nd in 40 min she said she runs 5k in 25 min but she has been running a year.
