Today marks the final milestone in my 9 week journey, I feel really chuffed that I have achieved my goal, and I recommend this plan to anyone just starting out. I have to admit I was very aprehensive in the beginning and did not believe that in a reletavly short space of time I would be able to keep running for 30 mins.
I recall the 1st few weeks when I was counting in my head the 1,2,3 miniute runs waiting for laura to say slow down to a walk, and thinking how I am going to manage the next week with an even longer run, but have condfidence I can guarantee you will fell it get easier as you go on, I have been fortunate in some ways that I have not suffered any blips due to injury or illness and have not had to cry of any of the runs, one thing that kept me going was the knowledge that I have not given up at any point - perseverance really is key here
Thanks to everyone here for all the support and encouragement - and good luck everyone
I may actually keep listening to week 9 for a while just to keep the momentum going, and this saturday I am planning to attend my 1st park run, it on the south coast (worthing) so it may be affected by the waather, fingers crossed
