OMG! I decided to try and do this run outside as I’ve been on my treadmill up to now! I’ve only gone and run for 25 mins on the road! So proud of myself 🥰. If I can do this anyone can. Happy Thursday everyone! 😘

Well done you! And hope you enjoyed the outside running. And 25 minutes - c25k is really amazing isn’t it?! The next couple of weeks are a blast!

That’s so great! You’ve got the bug too. I never thought it would be a thing I could do, let alone enjoy!! Well done us!!! 🤣 x

Well done it’s so impressive isn’t it and love it outside I did the exact same run in the countryside yesterday on A footpath after work when I pushed myself to do it instead of collapsing on the sofa amongst nature and really felt terrific afterwards in a natural high

Hi Nubird you can do this!!.. on the treadmill I walk at 6.7 and jog at 7.5-7.6 but you need to find your own pace that suits you! You’ll smash it!

Thank you ! I did my first 25 mins run at 8.2 .... and can’t believe I did it! Just need to brave the big outdoors... maybe once I look a little less like an ambulance case 😂

Good for you that you ran run 2 of week 7 outside after being on the treadmill for your other runs, perhaps from now on you will complete all the other runs until graduation outside.

Ah well done. That is amazing work. I can’t wait to be able to do this
