i have just finished w5r3!!! I have had such a change in attitude! After being told yesterday that maybe running wasn't for me, the 'me' of a few weeks ago would have given up and hit the wine, chocolate and sofa!!! I did have wine ( just a glass) and a takeaway ( just a starter) and picked up a big bar of chocolate in the shop ( but put it back!). The overwhelming support from this forum and my stubbornness ( my mother always said I had a stubborn streak - I never believed herπŸ˜‰) made me more determined- I've got up, got out and bloody well done it!!!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment yesterday - your advice and positivity made me do this - I will be wearing a smile as bright as my gold stars all day 😊

Massive love, hugs and respect to you all πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜”

Oh that run is fabulous (afterwards!! ) - massive congrats - good for you for ignoring the "running's not for you" comment and got up and out again and really smashed it!! Wear that smile with pride πŸ˜€

I really am! I honestly don't think I have ever felt as good as I did today! And you're right - the afterwards is amazing 😊

Brilliant! Good for you! Best of luck with week 6!!πŸ™‚

Thank you x

Having read your posts yesterday and the advice given well done on getting out there and carrying on you have my respect and admiration you deserve to get to week 9 and graduate

Thank you so much! I was more determined today than I have been in a long time! Your post has brought a lump to my throat and coincidentally, something also flew into my eye πŸ˜‰

Wait till you nearly swallow something while out running and good for you you can do this

That's is absolutely brilliant. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰. I love proving idiots wrong so well done you. πŸ˜€

A bit of fire in the belly is never a bad thing! Maybe my nurse wasn't a saboteur at all, but actually my saviour! She knew which buttons to press, employed a bit of reverse psychology - I am playing the 'glad game.' 😊

Yeah!!!! :-D

What a star! There's nothing like proving people wrong! That stubborn streak is going to take you all the way to graduation. Good luck with week 6. Just you keep on shining. :)

I am looking forward to w6, but due to a weekend away with lovely friends, it will be starting on Monday . Have a great weekend 😊

That's brilliant and all the effort to get to that run makes that one really special. Stubbornness is a good thing, without it you don't realise how strong you are.

All the best with week 6 and beyond.

I would love the world to be pink, fluffy and sparkly, but sometimes it isn't! However, whilst a bit deflated initially, I've embraced the negativity and have managed to overcome it ( for now at least!!!) W6 starts on Monday 😊

Bloomin' marvellous!!

I am pleased as punch - I am so often tempted to take the easy route, so toughening up and just getting on with it has been a huge step forward for me! Thank you for your support x

What a great post! Well done.

Thank you xxx

Absolutely fantastic !

Well done you ! You have such a positive attitude and are so determined .

Great post ! :-) xxx

I am generally a positive person, but also a little insecure, so if I'm told I can't or shouldn't, I'll usually conform. Something in my head has just shifted a little bit and I really quite like it 😊
