Today's run seemed harder than the other two this week, maybe because I really didn't want it to be a practice run, but I did the 30 minutes. Not 5k, but 30 minutes of running. So I have a clear goal for my next steps. I promised myself 9 weeks ago that I would do as much as I could but did not expect to finish. I am 67 in a couple of weeks and thought that as I had always avoided running that I couldn't do it. But I did and most amazing I enjoy it and want to go on. My advice to others; trust the programme, have the right trainers and for women a good sports bra, keep going slowly and steadily and this forum is full of lovely supportive people who kept me motivated and interested. Thank you to all and I shall stay on forum to share my future experiences, but as a graduate. Hooray!
