Completed Week2 run 3 today, pleased as anything and starting to feel the benefits myself, and others are noticing as well. Obviously I feel much better, even after such a short time, that's nice. I do feel more positive and less stressed or anxious. One of my biggest motivators to do this, is to use exercise to combat stress.
I feel very very positive about the program, even though it's been hard on occasions and I'm only at week2. I'm starting to have confidence in the program in trusting the increments to get me to 5K. I think confining my self to worrying about the next run (week3R1) is the best approach 5K seems huge from here!
I hope you're all starting to see the same benefits, my lovely wife is going to start the program tomorrow! Even the kids are interested!
Well done NHS choices.
