Just finished week 8 run number 2. It felt so good that I even added an additional 5 minutes on the end. I am looking forward to running my first 5K for real. I should be through week 9 in the next several days. I'm hoping that Laura has some advise at the end of the series on how to keep motivated. I can't imagine running without Laura to push me through. Not to mention how I will miss that snappy music--Ha ha! I'm so happy with how well this program works. I could hardly run the 30 second runs at the beginning of the program. Never though I'd run for 30+ minutes. Thanks Laura.
