Week One complete!

I did W1 R3 this morning before work and felt great!

I feel so much more sure of myself and my abilities than I did on R1 and really enjoyed it. It was the first time I've gone out in the morning too and I was buzzing with a feeling of accomplishment and productivity for quite a while after the mile walk to work even.

As I had to get to work not long after, I didn't stray far from the streets and alleys by my house - not dissimilar to where I ran for R1 - and I'm sure I noticed a difference in how I dealt with the inclines, (it's all hills where I am!).

I'm really looking forward to seeing how I get on with W2 in a couple of days.

I want to thank this community for being so supportive and spurring us all on!

You have hit the first major milestone! Seriously well done. Especially involving gradients. Personally I am still too scared of running up hills...

Enjoy your rest days.


I say hills.. they probably wouldn't register for most people, but at my stage in the programme I'm counting them as such!

Thanks for the congratulations!


Very well done you...keep ti slow and steady as you move on:)
