I completed this run today. I ran all but around 15-20 seconds in the middle of the last run. I had to change directions after finding my route was too short (somehow ran a fair bit further in this run) and lost my momentum... but I am really proud of myself that I picked it back up again and so quickly when i was absolutely exhausted.
I was amazed I even got through the first 5 minute run when, just last week, 3 minutes seemed to be very close to my limit!
Everyone says regularly on this forum to trust the program and I really am a testament to that... i go out at the beginning of a new week with low expectations of what I will achieve ( although feeling positive about the difference even a 'poor' run will make to my future and a determination to continue regardless, trusting that it is possible) yet every week, I am amazed by how far this program has taken me and how much I am actually able to achieve.
I never believed it possible and am finding it totally life altering already! This may just be one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself! So i'm feeling pretty proud today... so proud that even 15 seconds of down time in the last run can't dampen my spirits!
