Any of you done this before? I'm just starting it again as I've never got past the first week. Determined to be able to run a 5k by the end of it without having to take breaks or walk for the majority. Eyeing up doing a few parkruns before the end of the year.

I am halfway through it coming back from a massive injury that stopped me doing pretty much anything for a very long time. It's good to have something pacing you, and at the end a 5k is an easy way to make you feel good. Good luck!

Good luck, I got back on my walks in the last week (heel is killing me though!) doing a couple of miles at a time slowly building back up again. I'm too heavy to run and always seem to go over on my ankle whenever I even walk at pace, let alone run! :lol:

Diet is the biggest thing with me, I started off well yesterday and was determined to stick with it, but then I miscalculated my tea and got the hunger pangs, and by the end of the night had stuffed my big fat face! :lol:

I'll get it right though.

I gave my finger some much needed exercise in downloading the app... err, a few weeks ago. Not done anything since and probably won't for the foreseeable with the World Cup now on. DETERMINED (well insofar as a lazy sod like me is ever determined) to actually get off my arse and do it at some point this year though.
