I did it. I can’t quite believe it but I did it. The second three mi ute run nearly killed me but I shouted to myself to keep going and I did. I even speeded up on the walking too. I simply can’t believe that just two weeks ago I could hardly was struggling to walk for any length of time.

Feels good, doesn't it? :) Well done.

It certainly does - although I'm still aching and it was four hours ago!

Great stuff... let the belief grow... you’ve amazed yourself, keep going and do it some more.

Thank you UNM GRADUATE!!!!!

Well done Pickles!! I also ran this run today too!! Sounds like you had more success than me, I got a bad stitch during the first minute and a half run... :-( Hopefully Friday's run will be better

My knee was twinging when I started the initial walk, but was fine when I started running - its just the rest of me that was falling apart! It's been a long time since I've done anything as difficult, challenging or rewarding.

Go you I’m on the last run of week 3 - nearly had a heart attack in the first run of week 3!🤣🤣

That makes me feel better - I mean that in a nice way obviously!

I found run 2 a bit easier. Probably because I kept very slow for run 1.

You're doing great! 😸
