Didn't think I'd do it but I did :-)

I've just completed W4 R1 and I'm still in shock! No way did I ever think I could jog continuously for 5 mins......but I did. No 5yr in tow today just beautiful blue sky and a gentle breeze :-). Reading all the helpful blogs and questions on here are a really helping to keep me motivated. I'm becoming a better person mentally and physically. Thank you all :-)

  • I totally agree. I've just completed week 4 and am so pleased seeing as 4 weeks ago just one minute was tough for me. You are so right about being a better person mentally and physically. Here's to the next 5 weeks, eh?

  • Congratulations on completing week 4 you must feel really proud :-) How did you find it? I've read that a few people have found it their toughest week. I suppose everybody is different though and some runs are good and some are bad. The important thing is to keep going. I'm really enjoying it so far. Yep......here's to the next 5 weeks. Be good to hear how you get on :-)

  • Couldn't agree more. Each week seems to bring another milestone, you end up being able to do something you weren't sure you would be able to.

    And the forum is definitely a major plus.

    Just wait until you have done w5 r3. I find it quite mind boggling that I was able to do that and it wasn't overly difficult either when jsut a few weeks ago I could only manage 60 seconds.

    Good luck with future runs and enjoy.
