Done! The second half of the run was a struggle and I did have a few doubts if I was going to finish the run or not. There was no way I was going to stop, even though I wanted to.

My average pace was 8 seconds slower per km than my last run, but I am not bothered about that.

I am going to go really slow in week 9 to make sure I complete the full 30 minutes. I know it will be very difficult, but I will do it.

Me too the other day. Great feeling isn't it. Well done. Three more runs till we graduate! See you on the podium

Well done - we are so near the end! It will feel great to achieve it (hopefully) by this time next week. Keep up the good work!

No 'hopefully' about it. We've come this far by being positive and the runs are only 2 mins longer. I probably wont fit my final run in till a week tomorrow as I am ways next week so probably will only it 2 in - very frustrating as i would have liked to bag it by Friday!


Good job... you’re right about pace. Enjoy the last week nice and slow then consolidate what you’ve done for a couple of runs... then think about pace and how you’d prefer to start improving it.
