Firstly, thank you to those who read my
week one blog, liked it on
Facebook (trying to get to grips with social media) and, to those
who left positive comments, many thanks for your support which is
appreciated by this newbie runner.

'no carbs', 'protein only' etc, I found his advice and the food
guide really helpful. I would recommend anyone to speak to the
Personal Trainers at The Park Royal Leisure Club
