Week 6 - done!! And I'm a runner now!!! :)

I'm a runner yay - Laura said it so it must be true!!!

Didn't find the run too difficult, bit tiring, but pushed myself at the last 5 minutes so very pleased with my performance.

Can't believe that I've run for 25 minutes in one go, to be honest I did have a little weep at the end as Laura's words are really inspirational and I realised that I've come such a long way in only 6 weeks - yay me!!! :)

  • Well done you! Its a fantastic feeling!

  • Yay for you indeed! Week 6 is a tough one so you should be very proud of yourself for getting this far :)

  • Well done runner. That run is very emotional, as you say, it is a very long way from the feeling at the beginning. :)

  • Hey you proper runner :) very cool isn't it :) well done you :) grin, grin, grin

  • Ah Minuette, I cried too!! Just a few tears, but yes, a definite wet moment!!

    Well done on getting this far, don't stop now!!!


  • Yay you - well done. I will be doing Run 3 of Week 5 over the weekend. Hope it goes as well as everyone seems to say it will. Does seem a bit daunting to have to run for 20 mins.

  • Well done Minuette :)

  • Thank you everyone :) roll on week 7! :)

  • Keep on runnin'

  • Hi, Ive just completed wk6 run3 today. Like you it felt ok but I was tired. SO pleased to have done it though-25minutes!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe that I am actually enjoying the exercise. Are you starting to see any body change yet?

  • Funnily enough this week, for the first time since I started, I've actually started too see and feel a difference and I actually went out and bought a new dress and I very rarely wear dresses!

    Congrats on your run today. I used to hate exercise but I'm like a different person now and miss my running on the rest days :)
