25 mins continuous jogging 🐌 which seemed like a pipe dream when I put my trainers on today, let alone 6wks ago.

The first and last 5 mins were the hardest ... finding a rhythm and then struggling to keep my eyes open with sweat stinging them.

This programme is fantastic, it does what it says ... turns a couch potato into a runner. I’m well short of 5km but that is a target for the future.

I can do this, there are 3 more weeks to go to add 5 mins on to the jogging time. That’s got to be doable. πŸ‘πŸ»

Great job... it’s doable, you have it, you’re right you can do this.

Thanks. All but about 2 of the 18 sessions so far have been a huge challenge for me but the goal is in sight now. πŸ‘πŸ»

Brilliant well done. Your absolutely right not to worry about 5k, you'll soon be running beyond that anyway!

Brilliant! Yes, the end line is in sight now !

I’ll be lost when the programme ends. I could do with one called β€œ30 mins to 5K” 🀣

Yeah, me too ! I don't think I'll be anywhere close to 5k by graduation either πŸ˜‚

Well done. I am out at 3pm to do mine.

You’ll do it. Runs 1 & 2 this week were worse. Good luck πŸ˜‰
