I started the programme just about a year ago, with some start-stops in the spring due to a knee injury and graduated in September. This morning, I finally broke the 5k in under 30 minutes, running the 5k in 29 mins 44 seconds (nearly a minute of my previous PB). I have no rhyme nor reason for why some runs are fantastic and others are much slower or more difficult, but when you it goes well, the feeling is great. And I do believe as Laura says that even a bad run is better than no run. For all those still going through the programme or just starting, please don't give up. My knee nearly stopped me but with steady perseverance, some physio and support from my husband, I got there. Now to set the next goal…..!
