Running is fun!!! :)

Finally after 8 weeks of running I can honestly say that running is fun. I started off this program as a way to stay fit, but I hated jogging, now I look forward to it. I don't get tired while running anymore, i manage the 3000m run in gym class without having to walk even being one of the first people to finish. This program has helped me so much and I don't know what I'd do without it!!!! My pace is increasing, I even sprinted the last minute of my run :) Anybody out there worrying that the running won't get better, believe me it does. Don't give up and just keep moving no matter how slow. Soon enough you will feel like me and start looking forward to your jogs. I can't imagine quitting the program now like so many others have done :) I hope everybody else is enjoying their running as much as I am xxx

  • What week of the programme are you up to?? Sounds like it is really working for you.

  • I'm on week 8 now :)

  • Fab. Good for you :-)

  • Yes, I feel the same. I can't believe that I am enjoying running so much, I really look forward to it. At 49 I have never been fit and suddenly I have radically changed my life and its great!

  • It is pretty great isn't it?? It's quite amazing how it not only changes your fitness but your 'mental' attitude as well. I actually look forward to Mondays now cos its one of my running days!

  • I know how you feel, the bug gets you! and I find it really hard on my rest days to not get out there. So many people on here have been injured by overdoing it so taking heed of their advice. love it, live it and enjoy your new found freedom :)

  • I know exactly what you mean, I desperately wanted to go for a run today, but I decided against it fearing injury :)

  • It's not worth the risk. Suitably rested today we can both go for it tomorrow. Happy running :)
