Mr T and I have began the Couch to 5k (C25k) training programme devised by the NHS. It's designed for complete beginners to build up the fitness and stamina to run 5k in 9 weeks. You download podcasts which you listen to during your training session, that tell you when to walk and when to run (or jog in my case!) and contain advice and encouragement along the way. And we are LOVING it! I was nervous to mention it before now as I thought there'd be no way I'd stick to it, but as I am now on week 4 I think it's safe to say I am hooked, and determined to be able to run for a continuous half hour by the end of the programme. I actually cried on my last session when at the end Laura (the podcast narrator) told me I now run more than I walk during each session!! It really is a fantastic scheme and if I can do it, anyone can give it a go......all the info you need is here including a link to the podcasts, an there is also a really fantastic and supportive forum here full of inspirational people, stories as well as a place to ask questions.
As you probably know, I've had a long running battle with my weight and running certainly does not come easily to me due to my size, so I am proud to say I have now ran for a grand total of 97 minutes over all my sessions so far ;)
I'm also really Proud of Mr T too, and totally thankful for him agreeing to do this with me. Come rain or shine, we go out there to run.
As for my LO for the sketch challenge, here are some closeups.......
May challenge right here :)
I haven't forgotten about the kit work either, be back soon......
