Did it!!!!!! :) :) :) Despite rain, Laura jumping on a track about 14mins in and accidentally turning my phone, and hence MapMyRun, off in trying to get her back, so had to do the last bit by guesswork based on previous runs. But I claim the full time. Am I pleased with myself :D

Good on ye! I'm looking at week 6 going "yeah, I can do that" when I couldn't even run for a minute 5 weeks ago. I hope you're feeling really good about yourself, it's quite an achievement.

That's amazing! I'm starting week 5 tomorrow (eeek!) so great to hear that it's possible!! Well done :)

Definitely possible. Just believe in the programme; assuming you've found a pace you can keep up comfortably the real challenge this week is in your head as Laura says. I've found I can start to look around and think of other stuff as I go now rather than just focussing on the path ahead of my feet, then before you know it your time is up :)
