W7 R3 - done!!!

So I did my first park run on Saturday, counted as week7 R2 didn't use the podcast just ran it, I walked for 3-4 mins of the 37.55 it took to finish, must admit felt strange running with loads of people, felt like I was in someone's way all the time, but I'll get there.

Anyway week 7 run 3 this morning, have a stinking sore throat, totally lost my voice, but thought it's ok I'm not talking to anyone. I only went and managed another 5k this morning including warm up walk! totally chuffed. I've been changing my route to miss out the nasty long hill for a couple of weeks but I thought, I'll give it a go, and only went and shuffled up the full thing and beyond.

So so pleased......... Not bad for an overweight mummy. Week 8 here I come

Wow, great pace! You practically graduated already. Watch for your sore throat not to escalate to something more.

Will do the it doesn't hurt, just no voice. As for pace I've no idea what that actually is, I go by Laura and now I'm going none stop my distance. Happy as anything. 7/8 weeks ago I was struggling with the 30 second job, this program has totally worked for me. I'm telling anyone who'll listen about it


Well done- it's lovely when you can see progress like that!


Amazing stuff. Well done and keep on running!!
