Last night I did w8r1 and had to use my head to get rid of the gremlin on my shoulder saying I couldn't do it. It was when I got home I discovered where he had come from. I had run faster but I did it: so 25 minutes 3.9 km means over 4km at the end of next week. Yes!
My other motivation is that I ordered my graduation t shirt and it arrived in the post yesterday. I can't put it on my back until the end of next week so I'll hang it up where I can see it to remind me how far I have come.
Anyone just starting out remember, if an overweight 52 year old who has never run in her life before can do it, so can you!
