Finished mine on Xmas eve as well. I delayed finishing by resting two days between runs the last two weeks instead of 1, for the most part. This wasn't by choice per se, but it worked out.
I'll be running my first 5K on New Year's Day, so thanks to the creators of this app. I will heartily endorse it to anyone who is interested.

Hi, I finished the programme last Saturday and am now tracking my runs using the Nike app. This has completely changed my life. Found week 8 a real hurdle but when I got over it I felt a real sense of achievement. Have been boring my friends rigid by going on about this app. One question; lots of people seem to be using run tracker now. Is that better than the Nike app?

It's taken me exactly two months to complete the program. The weather has been bad for the last week so my JogTracker app hasn't worked properly, but I estimate that the final run was 5km in 40 minutes (4km in 30 minutes). Today I'll be signing up to run my first 5k, the Newy Parkrun 1st Birthday on 8 June.
I feel much fitter but I've only lost 0.8kg since I started (and I have a LOT of weight to lose). Must try harder. Onwards and upwards!

Hi there! I came to the other side last Friday. Started running at Easter, repeated one week and had a week of hol after week 8. I cannot believe I am a runner - never run before. Early srping I discovered a lump in my breast, as there is a breast cancer history in my family I was convinced I would soon die. I cried for few nights and made a list of things I wanted to do before I die: there were only few and one of them was running. Luckily the lump turned out to be nothing serious and I was left with running:) I am overweight and did not loose a kilogram. ( still 162 cm and 80kg.) my legs got slimmer and arms, i think. Look at my statistics so far:
Total workouts: 31
Total duration: 1d:03h:05m
Total distance: 144.68 km
rips around the world: 0.004
Trips to the Moon: 0
Average speed: 5.34 km/h
Average pace: 11m:14s
Calories burned: 11980 kcal
Now i am going to keep repeating week 9 for the rest of my life:)

(except Claire thinks I still have one run to go, as W9R2 somehow didn't get registered. But I know I did it!
