Hi Danielle, greetings from New Zealand, where it's high summer! :-) Good luck with the training. At the age of 58 and 30kg overweight I have decided to train for a half-marathon in April - which will be my first race ever! I downloaded a workable training programme for HM newbies from Runner's World, and I'm half way through week 2 of the programme. On Sunday I ran-walked-ran-walked-ran 10km straight through, and felt pretty good. Yesterday I ran 3.2km straight through, and this morning I did 3 lots of 12minute runs with 2 minute walking breaks. Tomorrow is a nice easy half-hour walk. I'm really enjoying the programme, and I'm doing all my training at the moment on the treadmill.
I know you can do this - if I can, anyone can hahaha!
