Week 8 -done :-)

...Completed W8R3 earlier today. 28 mins -albeit not the fastest and pretty far from covering 5K -but 28mins of breathing and finding a stride.

I am actually enjoying this. I especially enjoyed pausing; running on the spot, waiting for hubby to catch up and having a moment of frustration at the delay... (never would've seen that coming lol) ;-)

Anyways, onwards to W9 :-)

Well, hubby needs to keep up!! How dare he make you pause? Just kidding... tell him we love him too supporting you so much.

Week 9? 2 minutes extra? You can chew that up and spit it out... victory lap, that’s what it is... enjoy every minute... close this out.

Thank you (that made me laugh so I had to share it with hubby ;-) ). It's a great programme and the support and shared experiences on this site enhance it no end :-)

I’ve just done week 8 and like you I’m far from 5k, I’m hitting roughly 4K so after next weeks runs it should be about 4.3k (if my maths is right) but that’s 4.3 more than I could do 9 weeks ago so no reason why the 5 won’t come soon, good luck for week 9.
