I've just completed W7R3 after giving up halfway through on Monday! Yay!

I chose a different route, partly on country tracks - I'd always avoided slopes and rocky surfaces because of my painful knees but it was a joy! No, really! I even exceeded the 25 minutes because I accidentally paused Michael at the halfway point when I checked my progress, and I think I ran about 3.8km. So if you're feeling discouraged (as I was yesterday) don't give up.

I'm starting 2018 today! :) ๐Ÿ‘

Hi Lizz, just got back and managed to complete the run but only just! The last couple of mins my legs felt like lead!

But itโ€™s under the belt. Now to deal with the 3 extra mins in week 8! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Well done. When are you running again? I have some time on Friday afternoon if the weather's not too bad, but at the moment we're having very high winds.

Enjoy your recovery day :)

Iโ€™m planning to go on Saturday as back at work now. So two days to rest! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I've only got half my usual classes this week (I teach adults, and most of them are still on holiday) so I'm making the most of my free time - next week will be much more difficult, but I really want to keep up the momentum.

It's great knowing someone else is at the same stage - let me know how you get on on Saturday.

Best wishes

Brilliant...very encouraging to those who are doubting themselves...just because you donโ€™t complete a run doesnโ€™t mean to say you canโ€™t have another go...the first attempts is just a practice...well done for getting out there, the end is in sight ๐Ÿ˜‰
