I'm amazed I'm actually enjoying this,

After a full days work I got into my running gear and jumped on the treadmill for W4R2. As it was dark outside I caught my reflection in one of the windows -was that really me; running? It made me smile. I'm so glad I decided to take on this challenge and am amazed I have made it this far, this programme really does work. The stress of the day at work just left me. So proud of us all. X

  • Well done M'Lady!

    I did my Wk4 r2 today as well. I am away from home in a city centre, so I did it for the first time on a treadmill. I thing I noticed is that I sweat much more in doors without the breeze to evaporate the sweat!

    I'm really enjoying it too.


  • Well done getting this far.I did the whole thing on the treadmill and have never run outside.You do sweat a lot.must give running outside a go

  • I guess it depends where you live, but I've enjoyed running outside wherever I happen to be. If I'm away I look out a local park, and at home I try new routes. I am lucky in living in beautiful west Wales, but running outside does give you lots to distract you - and enjoy... sunrise, sunset, landscape (and the occasional hail storm!!).

    I've never tried running on a treadmill. I don't fancy the looks from the lycra mob... and I sweat quite enough when I'm outside, I dread to think what would happen inside :(
