Haven't posted for a few days due to start of new school year ... and one of my biggest worries. Starting the programme in the last couple of weeks of the holidays meant that I could get started at my leisure in many respects. This week I had to start managing the time properly so I could fit in the running with the day job!! Tuesday was actually easier than I had expected. I really wondered about the 3 minute runs but I managed ok. Today was another story. I felt stiffer in my legs and ankles and the second 3 minutes was almost too much for me. But I did it!! The Week 3 total time is shorter but Laura is making me work harder for the success of getting through it. I am sure that Sunday will be better again. I'm still using Endomondo to track time, distance, speed and pace. Things are improving slowly but they are going in the right direction.

You're doing really well, Janda! Work does get in the way, doesn't it! :-). Week 3 for me next week. It sounds tougher. Like you, it's making sure that I prioritise the programme as there is always another call on your time. Good luck over the weekend. :-)


I'm glad to hear it's going well Janda and you're able to make the time work for you. I've just finished my last run of W3 today and whilst I was fearful of it to start with it's turned out rather well.

Good luck with your run on Sunday, let us know how it went.
