This is a message for all just starting, those half way through, and those near to graduating. Stick with it, you can do it. I started in May. A fat unfit 45 year old bloke with no running history to speak of, a busy life, expanding waistline and lack of motivation. This scheme and the people here built me up week by week. I graduated end of July and kept at it. Three times per week, not over doing it. Today I ran my 5k in 30 minutes and 1 second. This is my fastest ever. I aimed to do the 5k/30min as per the programme. When I graduated I ran the 5k in 34 mins. I kept training and have got faster and fitter. If you ever met me you would not say "here's an athlete" just an Ordinary Joe. If I can do it you can so keep going, push yourself when you don't feel up to it or have had a bad run (we all have them) don't despair and you will hit your targets. Good Luck!!!
