Well done, I’m so pleased for you and you should be proud! Victory! And you’ve worked hard for it. Doesn’t matter if it’s slow. 👏👏👏👏👏

Just keep doing what you’re doing, because it’s working! As your stamina and endurance build up through all the running, you’ll find the distances easier. Keep taking it steady. Good luck with Run 3! You can do it! 👍

Positive thinking is the way in all parts of life i find more n more

Everyone is so kind I am genuinely moved

I think we all beat ourselves up over runs sometimes, so take this chance to give yourself a huge pat on the back, think back to how you did on w1 and now give yourself a round of applause for w4 :-)
