Yup - only 6 runs not 8, and you hardly notice that they are longer. I'm not saying the whole programme gets easier, but I thought the mental aspect of moving to Wk 2 was good :)

Your welcome. Just take it easy and you will do it. I learnt that pretty quick, slow and steady. ;-)

You are well on your way, fantastic.

And you've got the hang of this C25K lark: run, post, rest (repeat until graduation).

I'm starting Week 2 with my next run and am thinking about that more than a big meeting at work. I know I'm getting addicted too :-D

Thanks Getting :)

I agree. I completed w1r3 on friday and I felt I could have run longer but I am going to stick rigorously to the program. I am going to start w2r1 today. I really hope I can complet the whole 9 weeks. I am a bit scared as I csnnot imagine ever been sble to run for 30mins but I am going to keep trying. I really wznt to aim to do a parkrun eventually but I am also a bit scared as my local one has over 400 runners normally and I am worried about keeping the volunteers waiting but thats a few months off so I think I just need to concentrate on one day at a time.
