Hello. This is my first post here. I have just finished week 4 and discovered this forum today. I'm looking forward to hearing your stories and getting a bit of encouragement along the way. I have tried this program before, but I never made it past wk 4. I am in much better shape strength wise this time around and am hoping to push through with success this time.

Did you feel like that at week one about the next weeks?

The first time I tried, I did. This is my second attempt, so I knew what was coming. I am in better shape and stronger this time around. Week 4 was the one I dreaded, but I completed it this week and ran an extra one this morning for good measure. I won't deny I am nervous about this next week.

Hello and welcome!

There's tons of support here, I'm sure we can help get you past W4 although I have found it's more a mental battle than physical. You need to believe in yourself and your ability to push past the usual "I can't" feelings and do it for your own reasons. Completion of every week is it's own small milestone and each one just feels better than the last!

Good luck and enjoy the journey! 👍😊
