    Well done!
    Stop downplaying yourself. Some people can't do it, and some people are too lazy to do it. Everyone starts somewhere.

    I was just felling like a complete piece of shiet before start running, im not fat and i generally eat pretty healthy so weight was not my problem. But my sleep was super bad and i was felling so tired of basically doing nothing. Sedentary lifestyle is horrible, even if you are "healthy" and by that i just mean not fat you still fell very terrible

    Pretty hard to accomplish that when you’re breathing your own CO2 all day lol.

    That’s awesome!

    With running you make tiny gains at first. Once your rhythm is set it’ll become more about pushing the limit then it is about setting distance. On days where you need rest it’s still extremely important to walk long distance.

    That’s important as long as you are consistent efforts every day/ or other day over time quickly your results (distance/time) will improve & fitness and health.

    Congrats, it feels great doesn’t it? I used to love crossing that threshold and being in the zone...usually kicked in around 4 miles..
