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

  • Thanks and good luck to you for your run 3

  • 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

  • We do indeed - that's one of the things I like about this forum :)

  • 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 :)

  • I will, it's in my plan for world domination!

  • Yeay! :)

  • Hurrah indeed.. well done you... I had a lie in.. 6.45 for me :)

    Sounds a great run...:)

  • Oh the luxury maybe tomorrow

  • Tomorrow :)

    Mind... I did do 7 K, to make up for extra cup of tea :)

  • You hero you! 2 minutes pain with Julie indeed... I love me Julie :) Well that's week 8 complete for you then. Awesome! See you in week 9 :)

  • You're on

  • Go you two!

  • I was going up the incline and a small confession while she is a pain I did join in for a bit till i went round the corner

  • Well done on getting to here- enjoy your graduation week :)

  • Thanks started composing a cheesy speech

  • Now that, I'm looking forward to! :)
