Keep at it everyone!

I just wanted to say what an amazing programme this is and to encourage everyone to keep going! I started in March last year and could only manage four of the eight one minute runs. I graduated in August, not running even 4K. I've had more than my fair share of injury time but have always gone back to it and yesterday I finally ran ten k! Yes TEN k. Took me an hour sixteen minutes and seven seconds but I did it! I honestly never thought I would run that far or that long and if I can do it anyone can, so keep at it!

Fantastic. Am sure I will never run 10K. But then I was sure I couldn't run 5K. And for 56 years I was sure I couldn't run, full stop!

Many congratulations to you for pushing those boundaries :)

You will. I got stuck at 5k for a while as it exhausetd me and then my husband challenged me to run six and I did!
