It's been a while since I posted in fact it was when I needed a pick me up and you guys rock at that. SOOO I completed wk9r1 yesterday! I'm so amazed. I have asthma and always struggled with long distance running, I'm 46 so have the middle tyre now too and I am now 2 runs from completion. I purchased a new treadmill that has - screen for street views, a fan and 40% less impact for my joints. The treadmill allows me to emulate road runs so I ran the Brooklyn bridge!
Now for all you aficionados :-
I'm not hitting anywhere near 5k it's more like 2.96 according to the machine
30 - 33 minutes time and about 200/220 calories speed is 4/4.5 incline anywhere upto 2
What is the graduation process when I have completed my last wk9 run?
how do I increase speed? Should I consider running 4 times a week?
And I have passed on this program to sis in law who is now up to wk4r1(go lisa!) and a couple of friends so thank you thank you thank you
