Journey to my first half marathon.

This will detail my thoughts, feelings, workouts and frustrations in getting to my first half marathon.
Won't be easy, I'm 20 kgs over weight, never been very active, and also have chronic asthma!

But this won't deter me, its part of my new lifestyle management plan.

Will keep all posted

    Seems I over did it a bit sigh. Think im gna taper down to 2 running workouts a week, and a swimming session in between.
    Or... it could just be the hot weather getting to me

    So i decided to forgo the initial programme and do a three month training routine aimed at a 5km marathon.
    This is week one, and guess what! I can run half a mile!!!!
    well almost didnt know i could, may not be much, but that says progress, im even more energetic than ever, hope it lasts
    Im well on ,y way to running my first 5km in march!!!!!!

    I never did like sports, but i think marathon runner now fits me well
