After reading many of your inspirational posts I finally found the time and courage to post my status on C25K. I have currently completed w8 r1. I like so many others absolutely detested running, so have found it quite astonishing to have caught the running bug, and now find myself looking forward to the runs and even started to enjoy running in the rain. After finding myself being able to complete the runs (not without their fair share of ups and downs) fairly satisfying, I feel the runs now are becoming a bit of a struggle. Thoughts of those awful school cross country runs start flooding back. For me this part of the program is my nemesis.... It could be the fact that Laura's motivational words come less often during these longer runs. Anyone else finding this part of the program difficult?
