I also completed my W3R1 last night and although I found the 3 min runs hard, its now in the bag. However, I did think back to how I struggled with W1R1... so there must be some improvement!

I'm in my 50's, generally healthy and not overweight and have only done walking exercise in the past, so this is a new venture for me. I'm hoping that I can just stick to the program and get to week 9 without having to repeat too much or doing loads of other gym stuff.

All best Slow_Rob...ill keep an eye out for your progress. :-)
