Enjoying the program but got a had a few setbacks last week and the start of this week

Love the pod casts and really enjoying the runs. Before this course I hated running and would not even attempt it.

Its hard to believe at the start i ran for a couple of minutes and was out of breath.

Now I finished week 5 last week and felt fine and kept running for a good couple of minutes after.

Wanted to do week 6 run 3 at the weekend but we just moved house and so busy that i was decorating all weekend.

Then woke up yesterday and today with a stinking cold and don't have any energy at all.

I think i will suffer it tomorrow and go out and complete week 6, then move straight on to week 7.

I know im nearly there and it feels like im so close to running for 30 minutes I just want to get there.

I have recommend the plan to loads of people and my fiancée who also hates running is going to start this week.

Well done timmarsh, it's surprising how fast one can build on their fitness with the podcasts. Take time to recover before you go out running :)


That's so good to hear! Hope you recover from the move and the cold - take it easy, and you will be a graduate sooner than you know it :)
