Well since graduating in April, I always found it hard to run slow no matter how I tried. I've completed 15 park runs now since 14th Feb this year. Prior to this program I haven't been able to run 200 meters for longer than I can remember. I was always a fast sprinter as my name suggests, I could just about do the 400 meters as a young lad, but no way the 1500 meters. Thanks to following this program, I dropped out of the park runs for 3 weeks whilst I moved on with the program. I have now just posted my best park run time to date 25m 47 seconds average 1km every 5.03 minutes. I believe I will post a 24 minute time by the end of summer and all thanks to following this program. I have to say to those following this program, time is NOT important, stick with it and you will enjoy yourself. The park run I do, is extremely hilly and Im told you can take around 1 1/2 minutes off most other park runs, many describe it as a fell run not a park run. I can now manage 4 miles in 33m 52 seconds but have not tried to extend my mileage beyond 4 miles as yet, but will push on for a 10k at some point. Good luck to all those attempting the program, it does work.
