Who’d have thought?

Hi everyone. I’ve been lurking for a while but this is my first post.....If someone had told me just a few weeks ago that I’d be getting up at the crack of dawn on my 62nd birthday to go for a run, I’d never have believed them! I just completed W4 R2 this morning and am completely hooked on this programme! I’ve been a brisk walker for a few years and we live in a hilly area, so I guess my stamina wasn’t bad to start with, but I’ve never ever been a runner. Have followed the programme to the letter and with the help of this forum, I’ve made the step up each week with no real problem. I feel great! Let’s hope I can make it right through to the end.....

Good luck to everyone in their running adventure.

There is no hope for you. You are definitely addicted.

Keep running, keep smiling.


Fantastic! Happy birthday and happy running to you 👍🌻

I did similar last year after taking up cycling... I cycled 56 miles for my birthday. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
