W5R2 Confidence is growing

Just got back in after W5R2, I'm just so chuffed at how this whole thing is going. Yes it can be tough, but where would we get our sense of achievement from if it wasn't? My confidence is growing with each and every session whether it's been good, bad or ugly! If there is anyone reading this who is doing the earlier weeks and wondering if they'll make it through and doubting themselves, have faith in the program, stick to it, and you will get there. W5R3 on Thursday - 20 minutes continous jogging (or more like shuffling in my case) I will try my very best and then some, will let you know how I get on. X

Well done Leyther1 and Cazvs. I remember the elation when i realised that I was actually running, it's great isn't it and highly addictive. Who'd have thought i'd have been on holiday and all i could think about was were i coudl go running. When we got back i dumped my bags and put on my running gear and off i went.

It's a wonderful journey and we've all had some ups and downs but it is an amzing feeling when you realise how well you progressed

Very well done to you! I always like reading these posts, because it gives me motivation to carry on. I think a lot of this is all in the mind too - especially for the least athletic of us anyway.

Thanks very much. I totally agree about this being a mental challenge too and the further along I go the stronger I feel and the more I'm determined to see it through. My initial blogs were all about me 'hoping' I could stick at it, but now I KNOW its possible and that I WILL do it :) Good luck to you mummyluvsyoo

Well done you, and enjoy wk5r3. Keep that positive mental attitude and you will be on cloud 9 tomorrow. I know it seems daunting but once you are into the run and relax a bit you will fly. It's the most amazing feeling when Laura tells you its time to walk - go for it:-)

Thanks so much, I did it!!!! And I grinned like a cheshire cat when she came on at the end, I can't believe I'm doing it. It now really does seem achievable. :)
