W1R2

In the words of that famous chef Gordon Ramsey , no not the "F" word but DONE :D Felt really good to complete it, Legs felt abit heavy on runs 2-4 but felt better after and run 8 felt pretty comfotable , Still trying to sort my breathing out and jog/run at a pace that isnt to fast or to slow . Certainly think my recovery after each run seems to be a little quicker even if a micro second haha . anyways R3 on Sat :D at this moment in time bring it on :D that may change by Sat haha

Well done, Slow_Rob! Sounds like this running lark has got under your skin already :) There is such a sense of achievement after you have finished your run, I don't think anything else quite matches it. Enjoy your running :)

I think if you set out to enjoy yourself, put a smile on your face and just go for it then you'll nail it and have a good time doing it

Go slowly, take your time over this, it's not a race. Listen to Laura!

Well done Rob - good to hear you're already feeling the benefit... that little micro-second is you getting fitter after only 2 sessions... keep it up and you'll amaze yourself... and get addicted no doubt! Go for it! :) Slow and steady...

I hear you... I gave 'em up too... if people think running is hard - giving them up was harder... but so much better for it... imagining trying to do this while still on 'em? Nightmare! :) Well done!
