Hello week 8!

After a tough week 7 I arrived in week 8. Run 1 today and it was amazing! I love week 8. Who would have thought that me, the 43 year old Mum, bmi off the chart could run for 28 minutes and be smiling at the end. I am so chuffed to be here - calling all week 1 runners, thinking (like I did) that each minute stretched on forever - it gets easier and enjoyable!

Well done. I found it really hard at the start - definitely another dimension when 1 minute is a lifetime! Stick with it, enjoy it, it works

I'm at week 8 too and I'm also 43. I did my first run in week 8 on Sunday - the next one tonight! I found Sunday's run really nice. I hope tonight's run goes just as well

Hi wannabe... Glad you're enjoying the programme, I can't believe that I have taken up running and am enjoying it. I did w9r3 last night so I'm a graduate. 🤣
