W4R1 done. I feel fantastic!

First of all I would like to thank everyone who gave me support on my last post.

Tonight was great! I took it slow like everyone said :) I felt like I should have had some Strava PBs at the end but only had a 2nd best 2 miles, which is understandable because like I said I took it slow.

Laura told me when I had a minute left "If you're flagging, keep jogging". I went "naaah I'm gonna run!" and I did! Not sprinting, but a lot faster pace than the rest of the run.

I just can't believe I've gone from struggling to finish a 1 minute run to running 16mins out of 32!

Making good progress :) It's amazing how your fitness levels keep on improving throughout this programe, as you are discovering ;) Continued success and good luck :)


I thought running 1 continuous minute was hard in the first week and now I am running 5 minutes straight. 16 minutes in total.!! Never thought I'd get here......looking forward to the next few weeks to see my progress too!


Looks like we're about the same amount through the programme, we can spur each other on!


well done you will be a graduate before you know it! You can do it keep on listening to Laura!


Brilliant, it is such a fab plan and it is great to feel that achievement of's a real buzz. Happy running.


The beauty of the plan! This stuff works! Well done you. Who knows where this will go?!!!


Well done, it brings with it such a feeling of well being and pride. Enjoy your next run.
