Is running twice a week enough?

When I first started the programme I was running twice in the week and once at weekend but life has got busy with work and three kids and I'm only getting two runs in so obviously my progress through the weeks has slowed down which is really frustrating as I want to graduate!!! (I'm not good with patience 😉) But in all seriousness is twice a week okay?

Twice a week is fine. You will just need to learn to be patient :)

Good for you! Never in a million years did I think I would enjoy running but I am out there too and also going slow and steady that's better than being on the couch!
