Yes it works! Also 52. Just finished my 9th run after graduating ( second attempt as injured myself week 4 first time round). Go slow. Always stretch after, always take rest day or more if necessary. Just take it one run at a time. Good luck!!

Hi Lindylou16,Congratulations too on getting so far.I felt today funnily enough I ran faster than I usually did(maybe psychological thinking coming to an end)Good luck for your last 3 runs!Keep us posted please.👍
