week 8 my Nemesis!!!!!!

I have really struggled to do this weeks runs.

I did the first one fine on my treadmill, the next two runs i tried outside as i do prefer being outside.

I could only manage the 25mins run with the walk either end.

Then i read on here somewhere about changing the music to see if that would help, so this evening i tried again on the treadmill with different music to listen to and boy it was so amazing, i found it comfortable and the time went so fast i actually felt like i could have run further but i didn't cos i didn't want to overdo things.

I am defo gonna do my next run outside but with the same album playing and hopefully i will be able to get this week under my belt!!!! I so want to be able to run 30mins and graduate.

Well done! It's great being able to run both outside and on the treadmill! You're almost there!


Some weeks are better than others- you will get ther


Well done :) I found w8 really tough & am ashamed to say I ditched Laura in favour of my own music, as it was the only thing that got me through! You're doing really well - and the finish line is looking very close - good luck!


You have clearly worked out the best of both worlds. Well done and enjoy your graduation week. Best wishes.
