Have just finished W6R3 and when Sarah said I was officially a runner I burst into tears! 😭 Happy tears! I really cannot believe I just ran (snail pace) for 25 minutes! This program is truly amazing...and everyone on here is amazing too!

I wanted to jump up and down and shout β€˜yes’ when I heard that but was mid ParkRun so thought I’d look odd πŸ˜‚

Awww well done you for doing a Park run! I’m not that brave yet. Still running on treadmill but I hope to progress to outdoors at some point. Hubby doesn’t want me to but I know I’ll want to once I’ve graduated! We shall see! Lol

He doesn’t want me to get injured and thinks the treadmill is safer and easier for my joints

Do you have any actual problems with your joints? If not running outside won't do them any harm and will probably help strengthen them. You just need to go slowly and try not to thump your feet down.

No problems as such just aches and pains from time to time. The Dr told me years ago it’s just wear & tear. Thankfully I’ve had no trouble at all since starting the programme (Hope I don’t jinx it! Lol) Thank you for your comment and advice πŸ€—
