Having just ran W4R1, I firstly wanted to say "OH MY GOD I ran for 5 mins straight TWICE in one session" amongst people who understand how that feels!
I feel a tiny bit invincible right now as I never thought I would be able to get past 90 seconds, even when I thought I was fitter than I am now ... obviously I just needed the push that this programme gives you. I'm still overweight, unfit and lacking in confidence BUT I am starting to see a difference - the most important of which being that I now believe I can do this. I've even muttered something about dusting off my bicycle and giving that another go. I think I honestly thought I was stuck with my rubbish fitness level forever. It's pretty funny though because running was absolutely NOT the fitness activity I thought I would choose. I still need to get over myself a bit because I'm yet to venture outside ... but my friend has persuaded me to join her on a park run in September so I've got the motivation AND the opportunity to 'go public' (excuse for a new running outfit?!)
That said, I've just looked at wk5 - 20 MINS??? That sense of invincibility might be sorely tested soon enough .
Anyway, just wanted to share and say a big 'keep going' to those who are just starting out and feeling like it might be too much.
