I am so happy! When I started, I remember thinking... I can’t run even 1 minute, how I am going to run 3, 5 or more!. Today I ran 28!!!!

I find harder the first 5 minutes but then my body, breath and everything gets used to and keep going!

Thank you so much to all of you who through your messages, advices, questions,... made me go for it and believe that I can do it!!

Well done. And next week is just 2 teeny tiny minutes more so you got this. I remember how long 2 minutes felt at the beginning of this programme, it felt like forever. The programme really is magic !

Yes!! Magic is the word!. I remember as well how much 3 minutes run meant at the beginning and now... going from 25min to 28mins is nothing!. You don’t even think at all of those 3 extra minutes!!

That’s brilliant, well done. Today I’m wk8r1 and I’m really looking forward to it, never thought I’d say that 8 weeks ago! Takes me 5 mins to get into the groove, like you, but then it’s ok, I’m amazed! 😁
