  • welcome, read it, update away

  • good luck. my mum lives in middlewich which I think is quite nearby to you. (miles away from me). good luck with the big "life-changing" run 3 ~ no pressure :) I did the plan last year on a treadmill & have wk5r2 to do outside with my 12 & 13year olds tomorrow & Im not looking forward to that one & am definately apprehensive about the big one. will be looking in to see how you got on.

  • thanks for the replies ... i notice you say you did it on a tread mill is there much differance .. i have done all of my runs outside .. i need the distraction of running out side.. i dont think i could have got this far on a tread mill i would have got bored lol (mind u on a tread mill you go nowhere to start with lol )

  • carry on outside! the treadmill is great for interval training to help gain speed (you feel you need to do this later on) & I did mine indoors as I was very conscious of running & my bright red face & my puffing & panting. & had just joined a gym with a nicer shower than at home :) I am so enjoying it outside. it is completely different to the treadmill & much more demanding, so well done ~ hats off to all outdoor runners X

  • well i will defo keep up with it, and running at night hides my red puffin face lol and the fact it is now warmer than when i started the hat is defo staying at home lol

  • welcome on board, enjoy w5r3 its a great moment!

    Keep us all up to date, and well done so far

  • Helloooooo! Well done and enjoy the ride :) Week 7 run 3 tomorrow, Really don't think I'll be able to do it !!

  • thanks for the msg ... well update will be done by this time tomoz lol .. wk 7 cool im sure you will be fine
