I'm so pleased to have run my first full 5k yesterday!! I was doing wk 8 run 2 after a break of 3 days from run 1, feeling full of energy and determination... So when Laura said to stop after 28 mins I just kept going because I wasn't too tired, and managed 5k in 32 mins!
I'm so glad to have found this podcast and urge everyone to keep going, whatever stage you're at! I had a few difficult weeks (completing the full 25 mins was really tough and I failed a few times), but I've realised that I *can* do this! At school I was always the little chubby kid at the back during PE class runs, who got a stitch after two minutes. I never thought I would be good at running. And now I can run a 5k! So whatever point you're at, don't give up! Believe in yourself
