    Surprised to find it's too easy?

    Over weight doesn't automatically mean unfit! Maybe you have a job that has kept your aerobic capacity high? Or maybe you have a natural ability to run? How about using a app to log your speed?

    How do I add to my playlist?

    If you are using a android phone you have to create playlists with the default music app first. For my Motorola phone the app is google play. Google " how to make a playlist with Google play " to find out more.

  7. Ran very slowly.... Couple of snails came past me! Map my run told me my pace was 3.4 mph. That is 0.4 mph faster than my 1mile dog walk. Finding it a bit depressing at the moment. Try to pep myself up reminding myself I'm 47 years old. I'm six stone overweight its going to be hard. But I'm not getting the buzz I used too. Today I ran for 25mins I should be stoked. But I'm not. Should be feeling proud of myself. My right leg doesn't work to well because I have cerebral palsy and can't move my right foot. It just plops down and flops about. Can't balance on it for 2 seconds. Why am I not euphoric by overcoming these hurdle? Who else had the week six blues? How did you keep going?.
  8. Week five day three complete! Sort of.... Well today was supposed to be a rest day but the combination of yesterdays 12 min run and knowing that tomorrow I was not going to be able to run made me decide to try the big twenty minute run today. Warmed up set of . 8 mins 40 seconds into the run and I HAD to walk for 20 seconds (I timed it). Then I started running again. With a bit of deep breathing I ran the rest and 3.5 mins of the warm down. So would you count that as a completed week and move on or rerun W5D3? I feel elated and depressed at the same time.
  9. Well today was week five day two. First 8 mins run was a nightmare. Walked at 4 mins in for about 20 secs. But second 8 mins run was good and I carried on running through the warm down. Making it a 12 min run
