    Hey!
    I just had a look for the couch to 5k app and there seem to be a few with the same name. Which one do you guys use?

    It would be great to have a buddy for some motivation :)
    I've never run before but it's something I've always wanted to do... And what better time! x

    I did couch to 5k a few years ago and was doing well until I damaged my ankle. It's better now so I think I might start it again soon now that I'm back losing weight as well.

    Woo hoo to the new trainers :D did you get proper running ones? I find them more comfortable. I got mines a few months ago (I thought about jogging for a loooooong time lol) from JJB they were £125 reduced to £16.50???? How the hell they could do that I don't know but I didn't complain ;)

    AAMW sound like a great time to start. Can't wait till Wednesday to find out how you've done :D

    I'm starting week 4 tomorrow, slightly nervous coz it's a total run of 16 mins and this week was only 9. I'm sure I'll be fine hehe xx

    Hi miss g, yes good old JJB yesterday evening! Got Nike pegasus new shape ones, they have always been my faves. The only skinny thing about me is my feet! How odd is that?? Anyway other brands ones just drown my feet, so these new ones perfect! Could see the salesman smirking when I told him I had skinny feet...cheeky mare!
    Week 4 indeed, bloomin heck 16 mins how good is that in 4 weeks?
    How fabulous is your total loss, you must feel totally different now?
    Have good week 4, and roll on Wed, week 4 WI too!
