Was it a fluke?
Am I actually moving at anything like a jogging pace, or just falling forwards for half an hour 3-4 times a week?
OK, so I managed 20, but 25?
Really, how likely is it than an obese person is going to manage this plan? One size fits all doesn't fit the obese, I know that much..
Reasoned that it was OK. I *am* still 50lbs over the top of the healthy weight range for my height, running at all is awesome. My shoes are a bit off now, sizewise, and I need to be careful. We have been running a lot, and I've gone from not being able to run 60 seconds in a row without going beet red, stitches in my sides and struggling to maintain pelvic floor integrity, to running 20mins inside 5 weeks. As long as I'm not going backwards, it'd be OK.
Jack Sh*ts latest.. everything there was fab, but the first 3 had me spluttering at the screen. Yes, yes, OK. I know. Resolved to attempt the 25mins, I could always stop at 20 if I needed to anyway.
Then while getting ready this evening and putting on my new joggers (back into 16s now, no borrowing Sams gym pants to run in) and had Sam take a pic of me in them. Looking at the photos I realised I had to push myself or I was going to be stuck, obese and standing still. My mornings good intentions needed to turn into a good workout. I needed to plan my route for 25minutes running. My body is a lot stronger than I credit it with. I am in control of what I'm doing with the running, and I'm worth making the effort for. (Thanks Jack)
