I was shocked and panicked and doubted my abilities when i heard that i need to run continuously for 20 minutes but the program is really amazing it really builds my strength to run for 20 minutes and now i can say proudly " i completed week 5"

Yes "shocked and panicked" describe what most people feel too about this run! But you've done it. Really well done!

Yes - well done. That's a real milestone. You should start to feel a little more confident about the remainder of the programme now.

Hooray! Well done - first of the longer runs under your belt!

You have just reached the first major milestone. It's a fantastic feeling. And you know now that you can complete the course with lauras help. Week 6 though is not easy. Going back to intervals seems like a retrograde step, but it works. Good luck, you're past the halfway point and it's all downhill from here.

I am still only using the app, on the long continuous runs, all I hear is, start running, you are half way, start your cool down. I do get to listen to my own music though. I know when I hear I am halfway, I am past the awkward stage of getting comfortable, and also hearing halfway just spurs me on to complete the second half, I have had to really slow down at some inclines, but just take much shorter steps and keep jogging, its a great feeling getting healthy

I have looked for the pod casts and can't find them. Do you have a link?

Well done!! I have just finished wk5 run 1 and cannot even imagine being able to run for 20 minutes, even though I am supposed to be doing so by the end of the week.
