  • Well done Rob... you have given me inspiration for my Run 1 of week 4 this evening!! :-) I am hoping that my struggle through my last run of week 3 was a blip and that perhaps my busy Sunday didn't help.

    Going to try to set off a bit slower, but I'm convinced I can walk faster!! But appears from others that this isn't a problem and we can work on speed later.

  • Hi Andy,thanks :D I definitely run slow and steady :D i do push myself a little on the last run ,only as i know i can walk at the end of it lol I did read on the NHS site its says we can have good and bad runs , just accept them and move on to the next one :D look forward :D

    I do look forward to my runs now , This my battle with years of smoking and being a complete lazy git really !!

    There is a lot of support and encouragement from everyone on here and seeing their stories helps :D Hope your run goes well Andy you can do it :D

  • Ditto on all of that!!! Will post the outcome in the morning :-)

  • Look forward to seeing you completed your run Andy :)

  • Well done you, Rob. Finding the enjoyment is half the battle :)

  • Thanks Thomas :)

  • Thanks atomic :) it seems i have :D to think 8 months ago i was smoking between 30-40 a day !! Every week I have to pinch myself and think wow did i really just do that :) I was definitely one of those who thought "i can't run" but I can :D I am sticking to the program i want to succeed :D
