Thank you. Keep going Englishmum you sound as though you are doing fab too! I'm always apprehensive on the first run of the 'week' although take that run a little slower and am trusting the program. Once I've completed the Run 1 of the week it spurs me on to the next 2! Good Luck!

Yes godzed! I can hardly believe that I had never run 4 weeks ago and now I'm running for around 15 mins in a 25 min period now!

Well done, me too!! I just did the 3rd run yesterday! It was quite a big step up from week 3 and I never thought I'd manage, so am very pleased, as you should be too :D

Congratulations hollykb113! I'm telling myself the first couple of runs of week 5 are no different in length to what we have just completed in week 4, but are about running at different times. We can do it!! :D :D

Yes I feel quite confident for runs 1 and 2, its the full 20 mins that makes me a bit apprehensive. But all I can do is try!!

Totally relate to that. Hopefully by then we'll be ready as we'll have run at least 15 mins in total on several of the prior runs so its only a little further. I'm told by many, taking it slow is the answer. Eikk! Best of Luck!

Excellent news hollykb113. Thank you, I also completed W5 R1 this morning and whilst I finished red as a beetroot and very puffy I managed to complete it. Spurs me on for the next 8 minute Run 2!

Overcoming the psychological barrier does seem to be the key! Good Luck for Thursday!
