Thanks Tina, another chest infection stopped me starting again
. I'm hoping if it's mild this week I'll get going I'll take your advise and start week 1 and see how I go . The auld asthmatic lungs will dictate anyway what I'm able for.
Lou when I did the c25k previously I started by walk for 5/10 mins to warm up and then do some gentle stretches before I started but I really did good stretching once I finished, it's worth spending a couple of minutes to make sure you don't get any injuries and recover better. I did /still do pilates as well and found that it was great for stretching and strengthening your core which helps your posture when you run.
Running is good for losing weight when it's used in conjunction with a balanced healthy diet, oh make sure to drink plenty of water when you are running. Sometimes when you start to do a lot of exercise your weight can stall but give it week or two and it'll start to move again.
