  1. Did it in 38.01 which is a major achievement for me since I've been just trying to jog the whole time and wanted to do it under 45! And now I'm hooked! Gonna do another race in a couple of weeks!
  2. About to do my first race, I booked it when I started out with the app so I'd have a goal and here it is! St. Patrick's Day race through Georgian Dublin, happy Paddy's day for Tuesday from Ireland everyone!
  3. Just about to head out to do my last run! May not be going as far as I should but I'm nearly at the 5k and I don't think I've ever been so proud of myself. 8 weeks ago, I was praying for the 60 second jog to be over; now I'm heading out for my half hour! Keep it up guys cuz if I can do it, anyone can!
  4. First day of week 6 down and it was still hard going but I did a 15k hike yesterday so will blame it on that! You're so right, once ya keep telling yourself ya managed 20 minutes non stop last week, 8 minutes seems like nothing! Have a great week guys!
  5. I did it! Had to stop once or twice (dog related issues and a stitch) but I kept going and now feel great because I know I can do it! To think 4 weeks ago I could hardly jog for 60 seconds! Thanks for the support guys!
  6. Thanks guys! Just about to go do day 2 and then friday will be 3. I'm actually excited! And no, my name isn't Hermia, it's Amy. I just really like the name too!
  7. Just completed day 1 of week 5 and found it tough going but didn't stop! Terrified about day 3 though, I think I can jog for 8 minutes but 20??? Seems like such a jump!
  8. Just finished w4 day 1 and I feel fab! More running than walking and I didn't stop once! Happy Monday everyone! !
  9. Thanks guys! Well I just did week 3 day 1 and I kept going! My distance wasn't as far as last week but I didn't stop jogging, although I was slower. Would never have thought 3 weeks ago that I'd be able to jog for 1 minute, let alone 3! Thanks for the advice Az - I just focused on putting one foot in front of the other and then the time was up before I knew it. Well done everybody! !
  10. Well done everyone! I've just finished week 2, I'm down 5 lbs since I started, it's getting easier the less weight I have to pull along! A bit freaked out about the 3 minutes jog in week 3; found the 90 seconds hard going the first 2 workouts last week but not gonna try to run far, just gonna try to keep going! Keep up the great work everyone!

    Hi guys! I'm on day 2, only started but feeling motivated! I turn 30 this year so want to start as I mean to go on! Have never ran in my life - I'm a good walker but really want to up my fitness and lose some weight. Hopefully the running will get easier as the weight comes off! Best of luck to everyone! It's great that we can encourage and motivate each other here!
