Week 8 here I come!!


If someone had told me about 10 weeks ago that I would be running 28 mins Then I would never have believed them. And then if someone told me that I did a yoga class immediately afterwards and enjoyed them both I would have thought that they were joking . But I did and I do.. I can’t say that running is always fun and the first 6 to 10 minutes are always painful- but I can do it and have a huge smug grin on my face once I finish. Also reading all those lovely inspirational posts keep me going as well. Roll on week 8 I am going to enjoy all those lovely long runs😀

Love your post. I am starting week 2 tomorrow and can’t believe that I am saying that I am looking forward to it. I hope I to can get to a good level

Don’t worry you will do it. The program is great and although hard always achievable...enjoy the journey!

You will... slow and steady :)


The toxic ten is well known :)

Well done you...keep it slow and keep it steady, and you are right...the lovely longer runs let the newly forming running legs begin to find their happy pace:)

W1r1 competed. Second one tomorrow, know howyou feel. Well done


Good luck and well done. I’ve just started week 9 and I still find the first 10 -15 minutes very tough, but once you are going it gets much easier and you feel like you can just keep going ( well, up to a point!) so the longer runs turn out to be more fun than weeks 5&6. I love this app!
