just updating - wasn't looking forward to this. Did w 3 r4 on Saturday , as had missed a week for various reasons (sometimes life, family, work, relatives etc take over). Anyway , did w4 r1 today and it was not too bad (they say pain has no memory - I'm sure you other mothers will have sen told that after childbirth!!). Like others, during the 5 min run, when Laura chipped in, I was expecting her to tell me to slow down to a walk, but she was only telling me I was half way through the 5 mins! I was on the golf course, so had to keep changing direction to avoid the golfers (who lets them on when I want to run on the flat bits?) , so there were a few uphill bits where I was almost going backwards, I was so slow. Anyway, done it. You graduates must giggle at the struggles of us beginners (in a nice way of course) . I have taken 6 weeks to get to this stage, but it is amazing to me that I can actually do this - however pathetic it might seem to real athletes. So, everyone else, at the beginning or approaching midway through this programme - good luck, Keep going . AND I have just been able to buy and fit into size 16 knickers!!!
