As it says on why I run, I'm doing this to get fit enough to join the armed forces. I have a training programme from the british army website but the problem is, the first one is run 2 mins walk 2 mins for 20 minutes.
I tried doing that and got to a minute and a half before I had to stop.
I'm going to have to train hard because I haven't done any serious exercise for the last 8 or 9 years and am about 3 stone overweight.
I've got my running shoes and I've been running once since I bought them. I've also joined a roller derby skating group and when I can afford to fully intend on joining the local gym and swimming sessions.
So the point of this post is to ask if anyone has any pointers or anything? How do you get past the whole 'damn, I'm so fat' bit, and how do you work past your blocks?
I've lost just over a stone since I started but I haven't lost any more weight in the last week. How do you break through the barriers?
Any advice or anything would be most appreciated as I do enjoy running and my end goal is very important to me.
