July 2017 - Total couch potato. Friend inspired me. Saw event and have been trying to train myself ever since (No real idea of how to go about it, but given tips by friend). Want to drop weight, improve fitness and help others as I do it.
Managed 2.5km. Best possible speed in a short burst 2.75mph.
Managed to complete a 5km walk
Best possible speed in short burst 4.17mph
5km down to 56 min for this event
Want to lose weight, get fit and help others as I do it. Failed. Unable to do due to non-running injury
I want to finish this event in an hour. In the end finished in 48 min. This is much nearer my final target than I believed possible at this stage.
In time wish to get down to 45 min for 5km
Later want to complete 15km
Using Parkrun as my main training aid. Managed to reduce my time to my original goal six months early
Had worked in an office for years and done no significant exercise since 1982, Retired OAP. Become seriously overweight and totally unfit. Inspired by a friend who has given me some useful tips as I now try to get fit.
