Gosh, I didn't sleep well (worrying about this morning's run). Oh, my back's bad, can hardly bend. My knees sore. Minus 1, the roads will be so slippy.

Oh well, off I go ..... Flipping heck, this first 5 minutes seems to be going on forever. 2nd 5 mins - Oh no, I'm virtually going backwards and nearly walking (very slight incline). 3rd 5mins - crikey - I'm going to do this! Last 2 minutes 'you can slow down now' 'No way Laura - I'm going to speed up - this last 2 mins is easier than that first minute's run of week 1'

I DID IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to this forum - all the way round I was thinking of all my 'friends' and knowing I couldn't be the one not to succeed. Whey Hey!!! My goodness this programme is amazing isn't it. How can I possibly be running for 20 mins!!!!!!!!

Thanks a million everyone. Hope you all have good runs today. Love everybody lots!!!!!!!
