WELL I ACTUALLY DONE It

I'm so chuffed, I actually completed week 9, run 3!!!!!

To think that I started to run on just 1 minute and now I can run for 30 minutes,

So what next I ask myself, I struggle for time in the morning, so I think I just need to concentrate on building the speed up as I am still very slow

But I'm so happy that I continued with this program, it certainly does work

Thank you, and yes looking forward to my next run already 😁

Woo hoo. Congratulations!

*lets off party poppers and streamers

Don’t worry about the speed. That will just sort of happen as your fitness builds. 9 weeks ago you were struggling with 1 minute.

This week you have run for an hour and a half!!!

Keep the running routine but also keep the routine of coming in here and letting us know how you are doing.

Your posts will be a great inspiration for those coming up behind you.

And congratulations once again.

Enjoy the journey.
