thank you Laura for leading me into the light!!!!!!!

am sooooo happy as i have manged at last to run the 30mins of week 9. I had tried twice but failed both times, so this morning i tried it on my treadmill and went back to Laura --- i had been using my own music---- and i have actually done it, i didn't get too out of breath and with the walk either end of the run i hit the magical 5.183km!!!!!! Now i have to keep it up, i am so so pleased. I will do the next run on the treadmill on Tuesday and venture outside for the last one to compare how i do. Anyone out there struggling please don't give up, for the feeling when you finally hit your target is amazing!!!!!

Well done! I hope all goes well with Week 9. Don't forget to come back and tell us how you've got on. Also then you can apply for your Graduate Badge

Good luck!


will do.


Enjoy your graduation week - only 2 runs to go. Good luck and best wishes.


i have done another 30mins tonight on the treadmill but for some reason i only managed 3.95km compared to the run of just over 5km on Sunday -including the walks either end- how can that be? it is all very bizarre!!!!! But at least i did the 30mins not stop and i enjoyed it, i am going to complete the last run outside. I have been on call for work this week so dare not leave the house in case i need to dash off in the car, which is why i have been using my treadmill. Really hope i manage it on Friday, i will run the flattest route i can and hope that i get nearer the 5km mark, wish me luck.
