Iíve just completed the dreaded week 5 run 3 where you ramp up to 20 full minutes running!
I did it! And more surprising than that, I enjoyed it and think I could have gone further!
At my current pace Iím not going to be doing 5K within the 30mins of week 9, so Iím going to see if I can increase my pace little by little over the next 4 weeks.

I have such faith in the plan and I love to see all the progress people are making on this thread and also when people are struggling how we can all support each other. Itís really nice 😊.

Iíve never been able to run the 5k in 30 mins-no where near lol 😂 I concentrated on the time more than the distance and I still tend to do that when Iím running. I do walk on my Ďrest daysí though so I tend to do 2 or 3 runs a week (20 mins now) and 2 or 3 10km walks a week which Iím really enjoying and find works well for me

Bought myself some new trainers this week and oh my goodness it felt like I was gliding along! Looking forward to running in them again later!

Ice had a chest infection this last week
Thinking of dropping back to week 1 or 2 when I go back out there.
I'm frustrated at not exercising.

Just done my first post graduation run. If I had to pick the worst time to run it would be midday in Florida, so of course thatís when I did it!



My Ďlogicí was if I can do it here in these conditions then morning or evening in UK should be a vast improvement.

My pace was very slow. I used the Runkeeper app; good BTW; for the first time and I only did just over 3.5K in 40 mins. I checked my walking pace and it was only slightly slower.

Onwards and upwards!

Completed week 8 today 😀

Only three more to go before I graduate 🎓

Iíve done three runs in the gym at RPR, I wish the air con was set cooler in there but other than that the gym is nice. Fruit water and little water bottles in the chiller. A huge bowl of fruit to help yourself from which is nice for breakfast after running.

They also provide headphones and towels.

Next run will be at Beach Club, wonder what their gym will be like.
