Re: Failed Week 5 Run 3

Definitely redo week 5. It's such an achievement to run the 20 minutes at the end. It certainly gave me the boost to continue through to week 6. You know if it was a hangover that made it a bad run so redo it without the hangover, you'll be so pleased you did! Take the run slowly. My "running" is ba...

Re: Weight change?

Hi I also started with 42lbs to lose but now about 34lbs :D Without reducing your calorie intake you wont see a huge difference in the scales for a while. What I am really noticing is the tone in my legs. They feel firmer and look better for having a bit of shape. The weight loss is also getting eas...

Re: I did it!!

Well done scouser. :) I am about to start week 8 tomorrow and personally I think going from an 8 minute rum to 20 minutes in week 5 is the toughest. I really think they put that in there so we could see how possible running for 30 minutes is. I love the way I feel after a run :D :D :D http://www.42l...

Re: Knee pain

I get knee pain from time to time but it's not crippling. I need to "click" my knees out from time to time. Are your running shoes supportive enough? Try jumping up and down a few times before you go into your run to as that sort of "tells" your joints what you are about to do :) http://www.42lbstol...

Re: Survived week 5 run 3 (but it was close!!!)

Congrats! It's a real achivement. I am now due for my run 3 week 7 and still feel that the 20 minute run was the biggest achievement of the programme. I think if we can go from 8 minutes to 20 then the rest is easy(er) :D Running 25 minutes is hard but I feel damn good every time I finish it! http:/...
