    What does it involve? I've not ran for over a year and have signed up to run a 5k Race For Life in just under a month!xxx

    This is what I've been doing! I think it's really good and you can modify it to your fitness level. For example, I have done weeks 1 and 2 in one week as I found it pretty easy at first, but you can do the weeks however many times you like before moving on! I'm doing week 3 day 1 today! It's making me love running again! Deffo recommend x

    I had a really good time at zumba. I was quite proud of myself lasting the whole hr. I've done a bit on the wii so knew some of the basic moves/steps which did help.
    I'm going next week too. Still plan on running tonight :oooo:
