OMG I have actually managed to run continuously for 20 minutes and I could have done more! I’ve had a mental block on this run for 2 weeks to the point where I filled my diary with extra gym classes, Christmas events, repeating runs 1 and 2, anything to avoid getting to this point. Well this morning there were no more excuses, home for Christmas I declared I’d be off for my run in the morning and despite my legs aching from a mammoth leg session with my PT on thursday I did it! On my warm up I made a special playlist to cover the time so I wouldn’t need to look at my phone and then like others have sugested I just listened to Michael and got on with it. I did slow my pace for the first 10 mins but then felt so good and pumped by the music stepped it up, by the end I was buzzing! I’ve lost 8st in the last 2.5 years, am no longer type 2 diabetic and go to the gym 5 days a week. My next challenge is to run more outside and do the park run regularly. I live in Cambridge and always wanted to be ‘one of those joggers along the river’ well in 2019 I’m determined I’m going to be one of them!

Amazing. You’ll love the third run of week 6. I’ve just done it. We’ve got this thing.
