I graduated the program a few weeks ago and it seems I've inspired a friend to give it a go! I went along for moral support for her first official run tonight and was able to share in her excitement at completing all the intervals. It just seems like last week that was me struggling through one minute intervals from hell.
To anyone who's graduated, I would highly suggest revisiting W1R1, it really is an eye opening experience! A few months ago I was just like my friend (gasping for air and praying for the interval to end) and now I completely breezed through it like it was nothing. It just boggles my mind how my body has actually changed in a few short months!
I'm so excited for my friend and am excited to relive all those wonderful milestones and accomplishments with her. She may not know it yet, but she is about to blow her own mind with what her body will be able to accomplish.
