Maybe an excuse to get on the IC :)

They do look very funky and comfy, ha you are only as young as you feel, i think thats the saying :)

I'm on week 8, I didn't know what IC was either and kept forgetting to ask :-)

Well done for getting week 2 started, each week feels intimidating, but it's a good programme and you'll surprise yourself.

It definetly is, today kind of just felt like w1r1 hard but achievable so hopefully, w2r2 will slightly better. It gives you something to focus on.

Thank you, definitely a necessity aswell as a reward, ive been running in my old and battered non padded trainers with fashionable holes in, so even if the new ones arent brill, they will still be better :)

I really hope the new shoes help - they usually do and I am looking forward to seeing them.

Much to my amazement, I am on week 9 - I do my last run of the programme on Sunday - it has taken me a while to get through!

yay well done, how long did it take you? doesnt really matter though as you got there and thats what counts. I bet you are very proud of yourself, I know I would be.

Thanks, it took me a lot longer to get through the first two weeks as I needed more rest days between sessions, but since then, I have caught up and think it is about 9 weeks since I started.

My first w2r1 was today as well, I thought it was very similar to w1r1 in effort, and getting to a hill on the 3rd run segment was not fun. I too will be treating myself if I complete w2 (then w4, w6, w8 with something special for w9 I think) It keeps me motivated.
