I'm determined to keep track of how each run goes (otherwise I might be tempted to stop, or think I can't do it after a hard week) so here's today: I did the second run of week 4 this morning (such a beautiful day!) and although it wasn't easy, I think knowing that I had already done it (including both lots of 5 minutes) really helped. No idea how I'll run further though!

edit: I accidentally wrote W2R2- happily I'm past that one :)

  • Great idea to post after each run, I found it motivating, supportive, helpful and even kept me running on those days when I found it harder...well done....just follow the rules!

  • Yeah I'm not sure I'd carry on without it! Just realised that this should say week 4 though not week 2!

  • If you can do W2R2, you'll be able (physically at least) to do W2R3 and if you can do W2R3 you can do W3R1 - running is very special like that. Well done and enjoy your running.

  • I feel like an idiot... I meant W4R2!!

  • Thanks for the support though!
