Re: I did it! I did it!

Well done and congrats. And for me, I found once I got the 25 minutes, stepping up to to 28 and 30 minutes was not that much more. Keep it up!

I ran every other day, never taking the 2 rest days as per the program. I am now 58 days st...

Re: My 20 min run

I had the same trouble - ran the 20 min run and then had trouble with the 2x10 minute runs - took me a couple of attempts to get through it. I have been working away at the 25 minute run, but finally decided to deviate slightly from the program...I was having too much trouble jumping from 10 minutes...

Re: Knowing when to repeat weeks

I know what worked for me - I did each individual run until I did the whole thing without stopping. I have been working away at the 25 minute run since last week but am making progress with each run Listen to your body, and take care of your knees - there is nothing wrong with repeating a run or a w...

Re: Week 7

Take that W6R2....I DID IT! No matter that it took 4 attempts! My mid back has been bothering me with a strain muscle, so I put some biofreeze sports rub in it this morning and DID IT! Onto the 25 minute run on Saturday, then hopefully week 7! PS - had to wear my rain jacket today for the first time...

Re: Please Help! Week 6 Struggles!

Well, tackled my 10-10 run this morning...made it through the first 10 minutes, but it was struggle. Have some pain across the centre of my back, think it might be a pulled/strained muscle which is worsened by every running step. I alternated running and fast walking the second 10 minutes. I am goin...
