The end is nigh

The end is nigh

W8R3 complete! Woo hoo!

For all the new starters out there just stick with the program and you’ll be there.

8 weeks ago I was out of breath going up the stairs at home. I would sometime struggle with a lengthy conversation because of my asthma and how unfit I was.

8 weeks later and I am cheating on the week 8 as I am running 30 minutes instead of 28. And not out of breath.

Take it slow. And then slow down a bit more. My comfortable pace would mean that I am doing 5km in 40 minutes. So don’t fee that you have to go hell for leather. Just slowly joffle (jog/shuffle) along.

And bit by bit, week by week you’ll also be typing about your journey.

Just keep us all informed as you do because the things I found I needed as I did this was a decent set of running shoes and the posts in this forum.

Go slow.

Enjoy it.

  • Three more runs to go la la la la -- where's our friend the purple puffing snuffler now? Just look at this sleek runner go joffling by....

  • I can’t get down off this podium, it’s too high so I’ll just wait till you get here to help me down & I’ll give you a leg up!!! Cant say I haven’t kept it warm for you...
