Last Week Eeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First run of week 9 today and managed 4.76K I am determined to run 5K by the last run. Cannot believe how far I have come. Will be nice to finish and not be so restricted to running 3 times a week for a certain amount of time, but am also worried that following the programme is the only thing keeping me going. Will go alone for a couple of weeks I think then if I start to lose motivation I may try one of the other podcasts people are talking about.

To anyone just starting out, keep at it, it is such a great achievement (not that I have finished yet, still 2 more runs to go) when i first started I only downloaded the first 3 podcasts as really didnt think I would stick at it but I have and its a great feeling, keep going people!!!

Not long now, know exactly what you mean, I'm looking forward to challenging myself for two to three weeks, but then I'll need another challenge, I'm thinking about a bridge to 10k programme.

I could only manage 60 sec 8 weeks go, how good has this programme been:-)


Well done you. I graduated a couple of weeks ago and am now running 5k 3 x per week. Best so far was 5k in 32 m 40s. Still feeling really motivated and it's all down to this place!
