So this morning I finished the programme. Running for 30 minutes though not 5K. Have loved Laura's encouragement all the way through cheering me on. Those of you just starting or in the tough middle bits ... stick with it, you WILL become a runner. The last few weeks I have never doubted that I would make it. The program has done the tough job of getting inside my head so I believe I can actually do it. I still have moments when I am still the useless school girl in PE lessons but quite quickly I remember how far I have come and get a grip!!
It is going to be very odd running without the podcasts. Am going to keep with just the 30 min runs with my music and runkeeper to keep me on track (Laura -- you should apply for the job of doing the voices for runkeeper -- I much prefer you to the computerised version!). I think I'll then give the speed podcast a go. I really want to do a park run soon but I still feel too slow and haven't actually run 5K yet.
Thank you to the whole team who put this together - brilliant job.
