Thank you Laura, I can actually breathe and run!

I have just come back from W5R1, in the local country park, and am amazed that I completed it it in a fairly dignified manner! I am now able to take a deep recovery breath during a run - this was an impossibility at W1, when I was wheezing away after 30secs. I'm scared to say this - but no injuries so far, and I can still walk after each run - I feel good!!

Well done, you'll soon be on the 'big' runs and seem set to take on the challenges! keep it up and you'll soo have your lovely green grad badge :-)


Well done ... it does feel better breathing :) so glad it is starting to come together for you. Like you week 5 made me realise I could do it if I got my pace and breathing right ... so keep it up as graduation starts to come into your sights :)


Need to change your name! Keep it up - past half way with the next run!
