Great work dying-to-change, you’re doing so well. Just take it slowly and steadily and I’m sure you’ll get there🙂👏👏
Congrats dying-to-change, fantastic job today 💪. These little increases are going to do you a power of good. And that 5 minute run you'll have it In the bag before you know it!! Don't forget to tell yourself you're fantastic and rest and stretch brilliant stuff 🥳
You'll find a lot of us describing ourselves as sweaty beetroots after a hard run.
Well done! 👍
Your choice… you can now go for week 4 or do week 3.5 a third time for confidence.
i never thought i would say this but i am going to do week 3.5 until its really done. over over and over again.
A wise choice. You probably don't have to do it too many times. The step from 12 to 16 minutes is less than from 9 to 16.
If you do choose to repeat, you could extend the final run to 4 minutes, then the next time, extend both the second and final runs to 4 minutes. That would allow you to progress to 13 minutes, then 14 minutes, making the transition to W4's 16 minutes easier.
Sounds like your doing just great, it's all about slowly, slowly, doesnt matter how long it takes, and you'll be getting stronger all the time, well done! 👏👏👏
i dreamed i ran 30 minutes. lol. i was so b****d when i woke up.
And the magic word is ‘increase’ no matter by how much. Brilliant running 🏃♀️ well done 🥵🥵😉
i don't know why i want this so much. i think its cos its the most unlikely thing for a person like me to be doing ever, in the world, in the history of time. and cos i was so sure i couldn't even do week 1. well i couldn't. not with ease anyhow. it was a massive strain and hard work. also cos i used to be quite a good dancer and then just stopped. and got terribly unfit. and wanted to get fit. well this must be helping that at least...
The harder it gets and the more impossible it seems the more I want it! How odd!
Congratulations 🎉 you will definitely get there. Trust the programme, and follow the guidelines too. Hydration, stretching, etc it really does work. Best wishes
Well done you, you ain't gonna give up.... fantastic 😁😁👏👏👏👏. 🦌🐢🐌🏃♀️🙋
My legs want me to but my head won’t let me!
I must remember the water thing... I always remember the stretches x
I admire your tenacity.You are getting there.
You got this 👍
ooh i hope so... i am giving it my all...
i just read a thing on here about how the biggest jump is from weeks 3 to 4 and not 4 to 5 or indeed the rest and see maybe why i have been having such a hard time!
3,4,3,4, mins. tomorrow my running times are those. i am jelly scared. but i wont give up. if i have to do them again, and again, then so be it. one day i'll win... it's gonna happen.
