Newbie getting the hang of it

I have tried to run on and off for a couple of years but while I can walk "forever and a day" running has always eluded me (not helped by the terrain around here - if you're not going up, then you're going down!). Anyway found this site, got a new mp3 that can download podcasts and away I went. Did w1twice, so behind schedule already but w2r2 completed tonight and I think I've finally got the pace right as I was going too quick before. Not quite overtaken by a snail tonight but it was close! Looking forward to the rest of the plan and beyond.

Sounds like you're doing great! Hills are awful but they do make you stronger, and if you can walk forever and a day, you'll soon be able to run the same. Don't think that you're behind schedule, the 9 weeks is only nominal, it's getting to run the runs that is the thing. Good luck and enjoy it (especially the downhill bits!).
