Thank you


Wow I have to thank you all for all of your comments on this site. I’d planned my W2R1 last night but really couldn’t be bothered and so didn’t go and felt a failure last night and today. During today I kept on reading your inspirational posts, had a horrible headache all day but when I got home from work I gave myself a pep talk and made myself complete the run. So glad I did, really enjoyed it and feel so much better about myself. The positive posts really helped 🏃🏼‍♀️thank you thank you thank you.

Welcome to the forum and well done on getting started.

This guide to the plan is essential reading

Enjoy your journey.

You can do this!!!


Keep at it! People here are pretty amazing, I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a more supportive community anywhere. And if you need even more motivation, maybe try and find yourself a running buddy?

Well done for getting out there!


Yes Karen!! Well done you!!! The don’t wanna run, runs are so great!! I’m glad you got out there and it sounds like it was really good fun!! Don’t worry too much about off days! We’re human! The gremlins come after us all and play with our head, however, you have certainly slayed those gremlins today!! Brilliant!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🤩❤️


I think this programme is as much of a mental challenge as a physical one. Making yourself get on and do a run when you don’t feel like it is an achievement in itself. 👏🏻 Keep going!

Good for you! For me it’s all about the mental challenge but you feel so good when you overcome it don’t you? Keep going: remember your body and mind will thank you for itX


Superb job getting yourself out there and through the first step up. Enjoy that next one.
