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!

  • That's fantastic!!!! Well done! It feels great to beat those gremlins doesn't it?

  • That's brilliant pinkstink! I remember doing that run and it seemed SOOOOO long! Not long til graduation now!!!

  • Those gremlins can be a pain. Well done not listening to them. Xxxxxxx

  • Nearly there! No need for doubts - you're gonna smash this!

  • Well done keep going 👌

  • 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.

  • Well done, only 2 more minutes, you can do it, you know you can, look at what you've achieved already 😀
