    Am I the only one that loses long messages!? Typed one out twice about the different apps / podcasts and both times hit 'done at the top instead if 'post reply' because it was no l longer visible so I forget about it..... need to learn and remember not to do that

    Nope I've known a couple of users having that same issue. It's very frustrating lol

    My daughter used to run track when she was a teen and she joined me tonight. Was lots of fun. Week 4 run 2 complete ✅

    Oh it's great to see a few more joining.
    Never too late to start. I am sure I will have to repeat a number of weeks but I am really determined to finish it.
    W1D2 done yesterday. Will do D3 tomorrow. I am using the 5k runner app (fitness 22) and so far so good.

    Well done on starting @VanVanDiane!

    Well, I feel like we passed a major test today - it was about half past 6 by the time my husband was done at the podiatrist (getting a special insole to correct hypermobility in his ankle) so was dark, cold, and also raining...

    But we did it anyway! Ran round a local park and along by the sea, and the hot bath at the end was all the sweeter for it o:) ok it's only W1D2, but am looking forward to Saturday's run, when we can actually do it in daylight. Who knows, maybe there'll even be some sun...

    Excited to get started tomorrow, think it should be fine here, too!

    Well done! You totally deserve sun on Saturday!

    Day one, week one, done! Only 2.64km in the time and 3.3 in total, but I'm going to try and believe in the programme (this time!)

    I'm not worrying about times and distances yet (though am putting money in a savings account for each km completed - will buy me new running shoes when needed if nothing else!) I just want to complete it and stay injury free - I've only ever run for a bus before :D

    It was a tip from this group - I have £6.84 in there so far :)

    I finished week 4 today. I’m a little intimidated about next weeks runs but each time out i feel stronger.

    Whoop well done! I'm already fearing week five from way back at week one....but this time I'm hoping to believe in the programme and magic will happen!

    You got this!

    W1D3 completed yesterday. Hopefully onto week 2 on Sunday.
    Think I will adopt the savings idea! Will buy new runners. 9.80 so far.

    W1D3 completed - and finally a run in both sunlight and sunshine! Still pretty windy but you can't have everything... :D

    Great work on the almost 10k already! I'm going to keep tabs on how you re finding each week as I'm one behind you :)
