What an amazing run I had, best ever! I felt happy all the way like never before! The sun was shining, I have my medal, my friends sprayed me with prosseco(wouldn’t waste champagne on that) and overall just the unbelievable sense of achievement! I actually managed 5.2k in the 30 min and that is something I never believed I am going to do! This programe has not only helped with my fitness but also with my confidence and other mental aspects. I will try and convert as many ppl as possible, I already converted 4 so my goal is 10 😂😂😂 Thanks to all you lovely ppl on the forum for always being here with a kind word or a useful tip! God this is like an Oscar speech but you know what? I feel like a winner! Happy running to everyone! 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

No worries. I’m a week behind you now but just got one more run to do. I did two runs for week 8 but wasn’t happy with it so I had a rest then redone it the week after. What’s your plans now?

Nearly there well done!!! I only did 1 consolidation run atm just a chilled one with a 30 min playlist I had on spotify I quite enjoyed it and going for another ons the same tommorow. I am really excited as next week for my bday my brother in law bought me as a present an hour of training and tips and tricks etc with a guy on the iom that is quite famous here as he ran 19 marathons in 19 days for charity and apparently he can help you with your goals or put you in one of his running clubs for your level etc so I am really looking forward to that! At the moment no big goals maybe a 10 k somewere in the future 😊😊😊

Yeah, as much as I liked the structure, I’m looking forward to just going out and setting my own goals. I’ll see what challenges are about but I may just stick to 30 mins, but up it to 4 times a week until I feel comfortable enough to start increasing time/distance. Wow, that’s cool. You’ll be running marathons in no time (when they’re back on of course). Happy Birthday for next week! Mines the week after. We’re lucky we can now celebrate it somewhere other than the back garden! 👍
