Re: weight loss?

Hi runamc I think you are now eating as many calories as you are using with the running. You would also have built more muscle in your legs which weighs more than the fat it has replaced. I finished the programme a few weeks ago and am now running on average 20k (13 miles) a week but I still need to...

Re: Help, can't get past week 7

Hey I finished the programme a few weeks back now and "only just made it" at every run! I still went on to the next. Don't worry, it's not a race, you're not in competition, its purely for your level of fitness and for you to enjoy running. Just do week 8 you will be surprised how tagging on the ext...

Starting again with a jog/run this time round

I finished the programme a week ago :D and have been scrabbling around to find a new programme as I aim to do 5k parkruns most Saturdays. My goal at the moment is to get my 5k down from 40 minutes to 30 minutes - probably a minute at a time. Benjohn suggested redoing the programme replacing the walk...

9 weeks of running, done :-)

Well, I am a little sad to finish, but massively chuffed with myself for completing the programme without injury or giving up at any point. My enthusiasm for running has grown as each week passed by. I have completed two 5k runs with parkrun which actually weren't anywhere near as bad as I thought t...

Re: W5D3 HELP

Hi Bonnylee this may be a bit late but first of all dont worry! Although I made my husband come with me when I did mine in case I collapsed. I didnt - obviously ;) Second, take it slowly, it's not a race, all you need to do is complete 20 minutes. Third listen to music, audio book, podcast anything ...
