So you aren't going to argue the fact that you're the drunk one?
I didn't scrape my knees....
It is designed for anyone to start, so yeah you may be above the initial few weeks. If you find yourself outpacing the program you can still keep it on for motivation, thats what I did. End of week 3 I decided to just run, ignored what Jo Whiley was telling me to do but kept the voice there for encouragement.
In all seriousness, son & daughter in law are both doing this & love it, the eldest & his oh are seasoned runners already.
I couldn't run for a bus, scraped knees & drunk or not.
Good on you all x
What she said ^^^ xx
How are you getting on?
Week three on the app, when it kicked it up to 3mins run I was thinking 'nope' !!
But it really has built my stamina over time and I found it fine!
Helped that I saw a really cute dog that distracted my for a while rather than thinking about running!!
You've also inspired the husband!
He can already run 5k in about 40mins - when I told him your time of 20mins he's determined to pick up the pace a bit!
Glad I've helped! Does he get some nice shoes too?
I've told him if he does a 10k he can buy the tool chest he wants!
At this rate I'm going to be super fit and super broke!
Once I realised I actually enjoyed running I invested in proper trainers, better clothing, even lights for running at night (in winter it's difficult to work full time and run in daylight). Sod rewards, this free activity cost me a fortune!
On week 4 now!
Thought it took a massive leap going to 5mins run today but I did it!
The two friends I roped in gave up after week one - I am THAT person still posting my runs in the WhatsApp group to annoy them!!
The one that fell over, and the one that was drunk? My day off tomorrow, I shall look at the yoga moves.... Can't be any worse than what the physio sends me via email...
Yes the one who fell over hasn't moved since and I'm actually quite concerned about the drunk one...
He is Scottish so I'm reassured it's quite normal!
Glad you're sticking with it!
I used to do my best runs after a heavy night out, very strange! Virtually stopped drinking since lockdown though and improved dramatically so there could be a link there I suppose.
Ugh I couldn't move after a night out let a lone run!
We've cut down in the last few weeks too - feel 100% better for it!
So, how you getting on?
Got to admit I've fallen off the wagon a bit!
In my defence I'm in the middle of buying a house - as I'm sure you know the most stressful thing EVER!
There was almost an intervention on the 'What's for Dinner' thread as I listed 'Tequila' and 'Cider' as actual weekly meal options.....
I'm on week 5, and even though I haven't run since last week I still feel good about it and know it's achievable!
I won't give up I promise!
