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.
