    I never used to enjoy going to the Gym, but while I was away last month the hotel we were in had a Gym, and I absolutely loved going in there every day - I really got a 'thing' for it and I NEVER thought i'd say that!!

    So onwards and upwards!

    :D

    Glad it's going well Lisa, I had my first proper gym session yesterday followed by a swim and I was rather impressed with myself. Been swimming this morning and Monday morning too.

    Have my first class tomorrow too, legs bums and tums! Also booked in for stability ball on Mon eve. The classes get really full at my gym, so have tried to book in for more but they were already full :(

    Good luck x

    Ive managed to work my way up to running for 15 mins!!! This is a huge achievement for me as i could never run at school, hated cross country etc, but have always wanted to be able to do it.

    I think i'll stick at 15 for the next couple of Gym trips, as it was hard going this morning...But pleased :)

    Oh well done! I actually ran on the treadmill for the first time on Monday! Not for that long mind, but had two little bursts :) I'm like you, hate running, hated it at school and still hate it now lol!

    Update!!

    This morning I ran 5k on the treadmill in 39min's 51 sec's....:eek:

    I've been given some advice that a good time for running 5k is around 30 min's so all i've got to do is knock 9 min's off by next year's race for life and who knows I could even win!!! lol

    I'm amazed at the pace i'm improving to be honest, I never thought i'd be able to run so i'm pleased, and I feel really fit too!!

    Hope this inspire's some you out there...if I can do it you definately can!

    :D
