Lets get a few things clear 1. I am FAT 2. I describe myself as a runner but Heck, sometimes despite my desire to impress everyone with my plussize fitness I simply find myself walking in races…but not only that I find myself looking at other Fat runners thinking “oh look, they’re walking too” however I think…

I have never done a Couch to 5K programme AND furthermore I don’t think you have to use a c25k plan at all to run your first 5k There I have said it. *silence as I await the backlash* So what is the meaning of this outburst? I must get a thousand emails a day…
