Feeling pleased with myself

Just needed to share with people who I know will understand! Yesterday I did week 8 run 3 and even though the gremlins were noisier than normal yesterday telling me to stop saying that I was too unfit and slow and I couldn't do it, I kept going. I ran the 28 minutes without stopping and did 4K. I've never ran this far before ever! Even when I was at school. Do right now feeling quite pleased with myself. Now onwards to week 9 and graduation!

Wow that's amazing 4K in 28 minutes, those gremlins are just jealous, push 'em aside you are the achiever, you are the winner!

Fantastic! I've just done W7R1 and I've realised (as you have too) that the battle is nearly all in the head. Once you say to yourself "I can do it! I will do it! I will not stop!", you've won and you will make it to the end. Congratulations.

Thanks for the support guys! Those gremlins are sneaky though, I'm already worried about week 9 even though it's only 2 extra minutes it always feels a bit daunting moving forward to the next week! My plan after that is to increase my time by a couple of minutes a week till I reach that elusive 5k! I can do it! The program really does work.
