Well, I am a super late starter and way behind you all! Run 3 of week 1 for me tomorrow (cough permitting). I am just so happy my mindset changed and am just DOING IT! Happy running to all. 😁

Thanks! It was lush. Looking forward to slooooowly increasing the distance though, to see what these wee legs of mine can do. 🏃‍♀️

I signed up at the beginning, but then decided that I wasn't really ready to move onto that level, so I carried on doing 30 min runs for another few weeks, so I am a bit behind. Just completed week 3 and so far so good! Thanks for the program, seems to be working.

Really not doing well this week... every one of my runs has involved some walking which has never happened before (other than the required walks in the C25k).

I can’t work out why I’m feeling the need to walk. It first happened during my 4K & I thought it was just because I’d gone out too hard but then again with my 5 and my 9 and I deliberately took it easy so as not to tire too quickly. 😞 I’m sure it’s psychological as I got to 6k during my 9 without stopping but then only after 2k during my 5.

I haven’t changed anything so am at a loss really. Will try again this week...

Personally I don’t have an issue with walk breaks - I do them a lot myself however a few things to consider....

Rest days to give your tired body a rest

On the longer runs it’s really important to pace it out and try and go slower

If I tire quickly if often means I’m coming down with something

Pat on the back you did it, feel good about that 👊🏼

Thanks ju-ju- and I’m sorry I seem to always be moaning!

Done my 4K tonight without stopping - it was bloody hard but I know it’s all in my head.

I guess I just want to get to 10k having run all of it so I know I can do it and then I won’t be so bothered about the odd walk break.

It’s a new week though so feeling positive 😁✊️ and will try an extra day’s rest before my 9k this week 🤞

Set off on my week 7 9k this morning. A couple of minutes in I began to wonder if I could do 10k today instead of waiting a week. It soon became clear that wasn't happening ... then it became clear I was miscalculating my timings (I'm still running on a mph treadmill so I have lots of calculations to do!) and was actually 10 minutes further on than I had thought ... so the temptation was back ... and ... yes ... I made it thru to my 10k time! It took me quite a while to recover though - it's so warm with the sun on the treadmill side of the house first thing and no breeze thru the windows. But I did it! I can hardly believe it. Great plan @ju-ju I hate the run walk approach now I've settled into longer runs, so this has been absolutely perfect. I'll finish week 7 and then do week 8 to make sure this wasn't a fluke. But, as they say, the pressure is off! Good luck to everyone wherever you are up to right now and many thanks ju-ju- :)

Hi did my second run today I thought I’d go and do the 9k run because I’ve got more time on a Sunday.

I was a bit panicky because I’ve never run that far before the weather wasn’t great a bit damp and muggy. Great for running but I live on the edge of Kielder forest so when it’s like this the dreaded Midges appear and they love me 😂

Never mind did and cracked it 🎉🎉🎉 I did it in 1hr.10mins.36 I don’t know if that’s too fast or too slow I do have a problem at trying to slow my pace.

But still I’m well chuffed at doing it

I feel I'm getting there slowly. We were away last week so I only managed one 6k last week but I've been out today for 4k. Im planning to go out Wednesday and see if I can do the 9k!
