I did W3R1 yesterday, and I almost defeated myself before I started. 3 minutes of running at one time?! I refused to let the negativity get to me. I didn't think about doing it, I just did it. Then I felt great. That's the crazy part. Afterwards, I always feel amazing. I love knowing I can do more than I ever thought I could. I can think of no worse fate than settling for mediocracy when I can do so much more.

Awesome, I did it today and was amazed. Well done you :)


Nicely done, Kimber! It is quite amazing what our bodies can do when we set our minds to it, isn't it?? :-)

Keep Running!! :-)



I am with you totally - I did W3R1 today and it felt amazing too!

Guess we must be amazing then....


I did week 3 run 1 this morning and was amazed I didn't find it that difficult. If someone had told me when I struggled through my first 60 seconds of week 1 run 1 that I'd be doing this I'd have been flabbergasted that this 63 year old could manage it at all!
