Nearly there - week 9 day 2

well I've reached a fantastic mile stone, running no-stop for 30 minutes. This app has enabled me not only to run but lose weight and feel better about myself and get back into running. I have completed 4 park runs and reduced my time. Obviously every time I hear Michael Johnson on the TV I get a pain in my knee and a stich but heyho!

I will and then my next goal is to run quicker still using the app. I need to get distance/time at a better ratio.

Well done on achieving a lot of park runs personal best and reaching the ultimate week of new beginnings. When did you begin your parkruns? As I’m waiting until I achieve week 9 run 3 before embarking on timed races.

I actually did the 1st park run before I started the app, my head was obviously back in 1980 when I could run. After that 1st park run I downloaded the app and away I went. My 2nd park run 2 weeks after using the app was slower which threw me but after that they have reduced in time.
