Every time I start seeing about the 'Race for Life' I always think how I would love to take part - problem is that I am not very fit!
The races in my area are taking place around the 20th June and am wondering if I could realistically change my lifestyle enough in 6 months to be able to jog the whole 5km?
I know I will probs get flamed for admitting this but I have been struggling with my weight and need to lose about 4st to be within a healthy weight range. I am 26yo female
I have recently bought a treadmill that I started using though my motivation has flagged over the holiday period - apart from that I haven't exercised regularly at all for a long time.
So, bearing the above in mind - would it be possible for me to improve my fitness enough to be able to jog 5km by June (even if I maybe didn't manage to lose a whole 4st)? I know I am 'allowed' to walk it but I used to love running when I was younger (and lighter!) and would love something to aim for and for such a good cause too.
I downloaded a beginners running plan from the internet but it didn't allow for the user being overweight so I just don't know if it's possible.
I would appreciate serious advice please and hope no-one starts being rude to me as I am feeling rather demotivated at the moment and a bit rubbish!
Thank yous x
