Exercise is good for you (possibly)

Following yesterday's achievement with DIY in the garden involving two bamboo canes and a length of bird netting I was feeling pretty pleased with myself when I woke up this morning.  So pleased in fact that I decided to try running again.  Some of you may remember that last year I started using the 'Couch to 5K' app, in fact I started it twice but, as with a lot of things in my life, once it started getting difficult I gave up.  The idea is that you do 3 identical runs each week with someone in your ear telling you when to run and when to walk.  Week one consists of running for 1 minute, walking for 1.5 minutes, running for 1 minute etc until you've done 8 very short bursts of running and walking.  Each week gets progressively harder until, by the end of week 9, theoretically you can run 5K.  I wouldn't know about that because both times I've got going on the programme I've given up at the end of week 5 just when it starts to take just that little too much effort.  So what I'm saying I think is 'don't hold your breath' and 'don't assume that, because I've started it I'll get right through to the end' but I'm feeling pretty good about myself at the moment so I'm giving it a go and, if you're still here, I'll report back on at least a weekly basis.
