  1. W2D2 done. Ran 5 of the 6 intervals. Then somewhere between interval t and 6 the app crashed and stopped prompting me. Once I realised I ran a little way but not sure if I managed thw whole 90 seconds. Feeling good though and I certainly enjoyed the run despite the wind and rain. My pace is soooooo slow though. I probably actually walk faster but i'll work on speed once i've finished the whole 8 weeks. Also I treated myself to some sport headphones after finishing week 1 as normal headphones are constantly falling out of my ears. They arrived yesterday and I so enjoyed having music go listen t
  2. This may sound like a silly question but here goes anyway...... I just started W2 and here its a little bit too cold in the morning to go out without a jackwt but once I get moving i get too hot with a jacket on and because I wear an armband for my phone its not easy to stop and take my jacket off plus I feel like it would mess with my rythme. So my question is, is it better to be a bit cold starting out but comfortable once I start moving or comfortable when I start out and hot and sweating once i'm running/walking?
  3. Hey shevy! I've just started too. This morning was W2D1. Did you get out for W1D1 this morning?
  4. Hey brooke! Hows it going? Did you make a start with the app?
  5. Ok. So I went for it and tried W2D1 today. Had a few hiccups but it went ok. ~man managed to run the first 4 intervals and thwn about 60 sexs of interval 5 and 30 secs of interval 6. Crossed paths with another runner just before interval 3 and he actually sneered at me. Thanks dude! But i ran anyway cuz f**k him. Then halfway through run 4 I ran round the corner and right next to a field full if Podencos (spanish hunting dogs) which all started snarling, barking and throwing themselves at the fence. Startled the s**t out of me and my dog, who hates thats particular breef because one attac
  6. Hi brooke I've just started this adventure too. I've never been fit so this is certainly a new esperience for me! Lol Today I completed day3 of week1 and i'm so proud of myself! I hate it when i'm doing it but the sense of achievement when i'm done is great! I've got 20kg to lose which I think is about 45lb so we're in the same boat. Running is actually helping me to think about what I eat. I think twice before eating something that i 'shouldn'' feeling like I put a huge effort into going for a run in the morning do I really want to ruin my progress by eating chocolate or cake?
  7. Woohoo finished my first week and today I actually managed to run all of the intervals. So proud of myself! Probably helped that today I decided to take the dog with me and he kept lookong at me with a "run human hum!" look on his fa e. I was also quicker today according to mapmywalk which again is due to the dog. He's a 60kg great dane so his normal walk is slightly quicker than mine and his trot is also quicker than my run. I'll definately be taking him with me for all my runs from now on lol I think I'm not sure whether to repeat week 1 next week. During run 2 i'd decided that I was but

  9. Hi all! Just finished W1D2 and it was HARD!! I somehow thought today would be easier than day 1 but it really wasn't. I tried this app last year and several things got in the way and I had to stop before even completing the first week. This time i'm seriously motivated and while I can't say that i'm enjoying it yet (my 2 runs have consisted of me thinking "i hate this, i hate this" theoughout the entire thing), I must say that I feel a sense of achievment when I'm done!. A little about me. I'm 1.70cm (5'7") and currently weigh 92.2kg (no idea in pounds sorry!). Before having my son
