After telling the gremlins to shut up all night, I went for the run and even though I felt like death by the end (so awful that im surprised no one called an ambulance when they saw me stagger up the street ๐Ÿ˜‚) I DID IT. I was too tired to cheer but when Michael johnson said I'm a real runner now I had a huge smile on my face :)

Nearly there now. Soon ill graduate :D

I agree. It's the first time I've actually thought I'm going to graduate. I mean I wondered if I could but today I said I would graduate. :) whats involved in week 9

3 30min runs. Always a bit daunting upping the distance but getting used to the longer runs now. Probably Fri when I do it as work busy. BTW week 7 a good week as you start it knowing you managed to run it end of wk 6.

Oh how I love to hear Michael Johnson's voice tell me I can slow down and walk! I actually laugh when he says 'Keep going you're doing great' because I think in my head 'you wouldn't day that if you could see me' lol

Haha ive thought that exact thing ๐Ÿ˜‚ and "what does he know? Hes an actual runner, he wouldn't be here dying". It makes me wonder if I should use a different trainer who I could imagine struggling along side me lol. But I like michael Johnson's voice spurring me on so ill forgive him ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I did w6r3 last night too - well done.

I made the mistake of changing my route and my first 2k were all uphill, I honestly felt that people were going to walk past me but I did it

Good going. This will be me tomorrow morning I hope, so it's good to know others are conquering their gremlins at the same point.

Onwards to graduation!

I have just completed it too. Felt exactly the same when MJ told me I was a runner and was smiling like a slightly mad woma I also might have told him where to go at 24 mins! I'm so proud of myself and really didn't think is be able to do it, especially as runs 1 nd 2 in week were so very, very hard. Get us!!
