Week 8 done! Can't really believe it

Just finished run 3 of week 8 and I can't believe how far I've come. I started out as a total non runner but I am a keen walker so not totally inactive but the first few weeks were so tough.

The run today was far from easy and I had to have a mental argument with myself to keep going on a couple of occasions. However my goal is to finish next week before the summer holidays start so I kept going, with my stubborn streak not wanting to have to redo a run! I even managed my second longest distance of 4.8 km including my warm up and cool down walks.

I want to encourage those starting out on this journey - if I can run for 28 minutes non stop then there's hope for everyone. Just stick with it 🙂

Thanks. We are all doing so well - each of us on here has a story to tell about why we are doing it and we should be proud of sticking with it and not giving up. 🤗

Very true. I completely recognise the mental argument too.

I'll try ☺️ - today was more of a grit your teeth one but I've been so busy I was tired before I started. I want to sign up for our local park run with my 2 boys after I come back for my summer holidays so that gives me something to aim for.

Like you I wanted to graduate before school broke up for summer. DD's school breaks up tomorrow and I graduated c25k last week. It was important to me to get it done before school broke up.

How nice for you to be able to run with your boys. What a great fun thing to share!
