Two days rest now and a long soak tonight and its week 9 and 30 minutes. Nearly have the key in the door and if fortune favours the brave i should graduate on Friday Hurrah.

Yayy! I am in awe of the fact that you go out at such an early time. Good luck for next week.

Thanks. I plan one day to go out earlier (at the moment I don't work and go out at 9 after my husband has gone to work) - I love the idea of running in the early summer mornings, although I guess it's easy to romanticise it when it's not a necessity!

I am the opposite I dream of going out later but we all do what we must

Try it... it is pleasant... :)Honestly...

I am retired but, right from the start of C25K, I chose to run every morning before 8.. usually before 7.. it is a great beginning to the day and gives you a real head start on things :)
