Run Fat Boy Run - 'Running'.


Life President
Apr 7, 2005
Im 46, until I was 30 I weighed under 9 stone, couldnt put an ounce on.

Then my 30's came and now Ive peaked at 13 stone. Lost a stone a year or so go using slim plan but have put it back on, mainly because I now work from home most days so dont get any excercise whatsoever. As I was so thin for so long weight control was always a bit foreign to me.

Sorting my diet out without going on a massive diet attack like last year, but Im now starting to run, or try to.

Now Ive never liked exercise for the sake of it, bores me to tears, even when I was in my twenties and played football/Squash etc I used to like the sport but not the training. Never been to a Gym and cant see that I will. I did however get into hiking/hill walking a while back but havent done anything for a few years now.

Anyone in a similar situation done the Couch to 5k ?

Done about 5 quick 1km runs over the past couple of weeks and its a struggle to say the least, not surprising as done no exercise for a few year. Generally doing the 60secs running/90 seconds walking for now but ramping it up.

Not sure if its getting any easier, although my times are coming down, only the very quickest mums with buggies get past me these days :smile:

Any one else doing similar or done it in past?
