Today I completed w6r3! to think 3 weeks ago couldn't get past 5 mins! and that had been going on for almost a year!
I started walking /running around March last year but could never get beyond 5mins running without having to walk to catch my breath. I put my name down for the Manchester 10k ( 26th this month eek!) after watching the Great North run. I joined the great run training programme and tried to follow that. It wasn't until I discovered this site that I made any real progress.
So if anyone out there who has just started and wonders if this programme will work, I can tell you, I'm overweight (working on it ) and the wrong side of fifty (five) and it's working for me
