Well, I finally got there! Wk 9, run 3 complete and I feel so happy.
Started my journey in January, having reached 50! Have never really run before as I badly damaged one foot when I was 19 (it's fine now!!) and have always been more of a spectator (and occasional dancer and swimmer!)
It's taken more than 9 weeks, due to the odd injury, snow, and the demands of family but thanks to all the inspiring stories on this site and the encouragement of Laura on the Podcast I stuck with it and although I'm not quite at 5k, I am sooo pleased with what I have achieved!
Added to that I have dropped a dress size and feel more positive than I have for ages!
Thanks for the ideas of how to keep motivated - think I may need them as my route is a bit limited (it's quite hilly round here and I'm not quite ready for the steeper slopes yet!)
Good luck to everyone on their running journey!
