Well done on ur run. Good luck with your next two runs and graduation.

Thank you!! You too 👏🏼


Great job... and the victory lap has started. Don’t worry about it being pretty or easy... it’s something way more than that, it’s just plain awesome. Once you’ve completed the plan it’s time to consolidate and then it will become comfortable, maybe even easy. You’ve almost completed the toughest running plan there is... 0 is a hard place to start, and just look at you now!

What does to consolidate mean please?

UnfitNoMoreAdministrator in reply to geb6o8

Consolidation is a time where we stop pushing ourselves and spend time making the current running more comfortable. It’s recommended every few months, and usually good to do when your reach a milestone. So in this case it’s run 30 ministers runs until they’re comfortable/easy, and then on to the next start line.


Congratulations and well done. completed my Week 9 Run 1 this afternoon it’s a great feeling good luck for the rest of the runs
