I did it! I blooming just did it - week 9 run 3 completed... not fast, not pretty, wouldn't say I actually enjoyed it, but the satisfaction of completing the programme is immense.
There are times when I didn't think I could run for the next 30 seconds, times when looking ahead was scary (don't do it!), times when I thought I would never get out of the week 7 loop I'd got myself stuck in and (most of the) time(s) when I wasn't sure I'd get out the door.
1.5 stone lighter and feeling a heck of a lot fitter, I'm very proud of myself right now.
But I'd love to get to 5k, so please hold my hand whilst I get there...
thank you all very much for your support so far x
