W6R2 & 1st post

Hi all, can't say that i am new here since i've been lurking for 6 weeks or so.

I am finding it very inspirational to read all the great reports, advice and encouragement. Thinking about what others have written has certainly kept me plodding along on more than one run, so thanks to you all.

Looking forward to reading everyones' continuing tales and i'm even looking forward to more running - and those are words that never in my weirdest dreams did I ever think I would be writing!

  • Well done on R2. Just finished it yesterday myself.


    Jogging along is what I have been doing too!


    Plodders unite! :P :D

  • Thanks nchunc, plodding is good, better than sitting watching telly anyday.

  • Ha ha ! Yes we all say that ! :-)

    Welcome aboard and Well done with your progress so far. Please keep in touch so we can support you along your way .

  • Thanks poppypug.

  • Hey there ianhtf there's quite a few of us at a similar level - I'm sure you're read the posts! We all jolly each other along and are happy to do so. Continue posting and we'll all get there together...xx

  • It looks like there will be a bunch of us sprinting across the finish line together.

  • Welcome, and well done for getting this far! It's a fantastic programme isn't it and this forum is so supportive. I graduated over a year ago now and still like to come back and read about others setting off on what can be a life changing journey!🙂

  • It's the forum that adds the extra motivation to keep going out on the cold nights and keep the legs moving to the end.

  • This is certainly the place for inspiration and encouragement. It was all the wonderful folk on here who got me through the hardest runs and cheered me through the good ones.

    Fantastic that you're already through almost to the end of week 6. If you're using the podcasts and running get with 'Saint Laura', then be ready for a real boost at the end of run 3 😊 Enjoy!

  • Thanks McFitty. Yes, i am with "saint Laura" although I don't always call her by that name ....

  • Plodding works.. slow and steady.. and this forum.. well we just totally rock!

    Keep posting, for support and encouragement.. and the odd shove if you need it !

  • Welcome and well done for getting so far in the programme all on your own! Thanks for introducing yourself - now we can celebrate your journey with you! :)
