Wow. I did it! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Week 9 run 3 in the bag. Hampered by a fierce, biting wind, but encouraged by the beauty of the setting sun Iโ€™ve just achieved something that i never imagined I could. This programme is amazing. Itโ€™s totally changed my outlook on excercise - I now love it and look forward to battling the elements 3 times a week. Iโ€™m spoiled by having the most beautiful countryside and very quiet single track road to run on, but even so this is so far from my normal routine. Although Iโ€™ve not been one for regular posts here, just reading everyone elseโ€™s stories has really spurred me on, encouraging me when I didnโ€™t believe in myself. Thanks to this wonderful community for all the inspiration. Iโ€™m relying on you to help me through this scary time where I have to say goodbye to Jo Whiley and run on my own.

Many congratulations fellow runner.

Consolidate for a few weeks, just to ingrain the habit.

Keep running, keep smiling.
