Roll on Week 4

Well, here I am at the start of week 4 and I'm loving it. I've never been a runner before, but I had a sudden urge to get out there - I'm so glad I took Laura with me!

Week 3 was a bit of a nightmare, as it started with sore shins, a failed run and a painful walk home. Having consulted YouTube and read about other C25K people's experiences, I toe-tapped and heel-raised my way through the week and now the shins don't hurt at all. Happy days!

Really looking forward to seeing what I can achieve this week and can't wait to get myself a graduate badge and t-shirt.

That toe tapping really works, doesn't it :-) Good luck with week 4 - some people say it's a tough one but you'll get there.

A new t-shirt in a few weeks' time does sound tempting!


You are well on your way, Crafting_girl!! It sounds like you are working your way through the shin issues!!! Keep it up and Keep Running!!
