Trying again third time lucky


After trying this twice and getting to week 8 both times and had to stop due to injury, I'm going to try again, but this time out in the street rather than on the treadmill so fingers crossed I will get to complete the 9 weeks.

Wish me luck.

Aaagh, saw your post and it says "2 days ago"... Did you run? How did it go? I DO wish you luck!!

Hi, yes I did run I felt like an Elephant but did it. Two days on and my muscles are still sore I will try again perhaps not today but when my muscles tell me it's ok thanks for your encouragement.
