I did it! Can't believe I have just run for 25 mins. I even managed to do what Laura suggested and up the pace for the last 1 minute. Plus I can finally tell I'm getting fitter as even the hills didn't seem too bad, although I do slow to crawl going up them. So for all runners just starting on this fantastic programme believe me you can do it. I would never have thought I would reach this stage after huffing and puffing my way through the first weeks, now I really believe I will be able to run for 30 mins by the end of the 9 weeks. Bye the way I am 57 and have never run in my life before now so don't let age be a barrier either. I feel so proud of myself.
