C25K W4R1

Can't believe it, I was so scared when I saw the program for week 4 - I got in from work last night, got straight into my gear, out on the treadmill and managed the whole program! So pleased, this time 3 weeks ago I was struggling to run 1 minute, let alone 2 lots of 5 mins and 2 lots of 3 in quick succession. I hope I manage the rest of this week and am ready to do week 5 next week! Also entered the race for life and want to run the whole race so I can get extra sponsorship!! :-D x Hope everyone else is doing well and achieving their goals and dreams.....good luck for the week ahead everyone xx

  • Brilliant feeling of achievement eh? Well done xxx

  • it sure was kickibro - couldn't believe what I managed to achieve!! xxx

  • Well, well, well - knew you could do it. I seem to remember you needing quite a bit of encouragement not so long ago - now look at you. You are making some real progress and it's deserved, you've put the work in to achieve it. Signing up to do R4L will help to keep you going - it has certainly made things easier for me, motivation-wise. Good luck with your next run and very best wishes.

  • Thank you so much Fitmo. I really appreciate your enthusiasm and lovely comments :-) x

  • So pleased for you! You sound so motivated and ready to push on. The R4L is a brilliant goal to be aiming for! I'm doing it in Worcester in July....can't really believe it as I'm still a total newbie in my mind! Good luck with WK5...

  • I too thought 5 minutes running would kill me but here I am typing away about to go for session 3 of wk4 after work. In a sadistic kind of way I am enjoying it both from a fitness point of view and a switching off point of view after a day of work and child wrangling!

  • Thanks so much tomlertoos and Sausagepot! It's amazing how well your body copes with exercise when you build up gradually :-) I am really looking forward to the R4L, doing mine in Cambridge, also in July :-) It's for a great cause and we lost our daughter in laws mum at age 48 to pancreatic cancer in February this year and my step-dad was diagnosed with cancer last November, so I am hoping to raise a bit for the cause too :-) Enjoy your training xx
