w1/r3 failed and tried again and completed!

update... tried again and completed!

I was quite disappointed I had to finish earlier today. It got to 6pm, I fed the cat and dog, we then sat down and had our dinner. at 7pm we sat down to watch the dog whisperer and I thought I will have another go, so I went upstairs and swapped my trainers again (pair no.3), set up my ipad next to my treadmill and pressed start.

This time I set the walking speed to 2.5mph and when it got to the running mode, left it at the same speed but I jogged on my toes as if I was skipping across water! and I completed it and most importantly without any pain.

Well done for having another go! This programme is addictive and somehow, I don't know how, it is possible to get through each challenge. Good luck with the next one. And the next one!!


Yes! Glad to hear you got it sorted out. And slow really is the way to go.


well done. Onwards and upwards :)


Well done for conquering the run. By the way, we don't use the F word on this forum. Every run is training for the next and there is no shame in repeating runs. You are in control. It is a good idea to leave some time between eating and running. At least an hour after a light meal and up to two hours for a heavy meal.
