Last year(16) I decided that I needed to improve my fitness and lose a little weigh as I was starting to feel a bit blaaa. I have never been a runner, but wanted to give it a try. I started with the c25k app... really struggled running for even the shortest time. Gradually I improved a little and could run for 20 mins slowly without stopping. As it started to get dark before I got home from work I stopped running around the country lanes(scared I might get run over) and stopped for a few months. I then got a treadmill in feb 17and from March 17 I set myself a goal of running 3 times a week for 30 mins ( and longer or more sessions was a bonus) I have stuck to this well, the odd week I might have missed a run. I have managed to hit 5k in 30min57sec... can't seem to beat it!

GOOD JOB. It may seem like a rut but it's still better than before.
