Week 3 complete

Well, with the satisfaction of having completed week 3 ringing in my ears I went spinning today... And I am actually finding it easier on the lungs and legs! Quite impressed with the progress over the last 3 weeks and I hope that it continues.

I have taken to actually patting myself on the back when Laura says well done! I probably look a sight walking down the street but I don't care. We are all achieving something here and a little self reward is in order I think!

Week 4 run 1 tomorrow. Lets hope the sun is shining!

Keep going Helen, you are doing great!

personally I found weeks 3-5 the hardest so keep plodding on. I love the pat on the back idea. When I finish my tough runs I finish with my arms out waving like I've come through an Olympic even first (as if). I chuckle to myself but its a great feeling.

Today I did a Twedders (finished with arms aloft) and a pat on the back! ??

Thanks Linda. I'm loving this website. Think I would have lost motivation in week two without it!

HI Helen. Glad to hear that there's someone else who actually pats themselves on the back at the end of the run - I think it helps! It 's got me through to Week 9 run 2 so far, with my graduation run tomorrow. Well done and good luck with week 4 and beyond!
