    Hi everyone!
     
    I've never really done anything like this before. I was born with a few heart defects and haven't really been allowed to exercise until now. I've always wanted to run a 5K but never had someone to motivate me or was allowed.  I got the okay from my cardiologist to start running. My goal is to run a 5K by middle of September. This goal means a lot to me. Middle of September will be three years since my most recent open heart surgery. So to run 3 mile by my 3rd anniversary will be awesome. I hope I can stay motivated and accomplish this goal!

    Good luck to you, I'm 51, not overweight but far from fit and with high blood pressure. Currently just started week 5. Seriously never think I can do it every time I go out but have managed to get through every day so far, although the heat is not doing me any favours! You're stronger than you think you are! My aim is to run a 5k with my 24 yr old daughter

    Best motivation - rewards! Did I run three times this week? - OK, I can have ice-cream this Saturday
    The main trick is to find rewards that will motivate you....
    Tasks should be small and easy reachable. Rewards should fit the size of the task:
    easy task - small reward; big task bigger reward.
     
    It is working for my dog and it is working for me too!

    Hi, I'm 51 and decided I wanted to get fit for my grandson. I have just completed W2D2 and after each first running segment I think "I can't do this" but so far I've managed to complete each one. I keep telling myself I'm stronger than I think I am and I'm sure you are too. Good luck
