    Full on blister on my sole, hoping it'll be okay for a run tomorrow, but am hobbling at the moment!

    Well done everyone getting the runs in!

    Make sure your shoes fit right and you have good socks.

    Ok skipping week one day three.... have a less walk heavy day today which should help with the blisters but not gonna run again until Friday and go straight in with week 2 day 1 to keep on plan, won't be skipping runs in later weeks though!

    I wouldn't worry about getting 'behind' on the plan, doing all the runs will benefit you more.

    Very good point, I'm just impatient, with everything!

    Sole blisters is a problem I've had on and off forever.... My dad is susceptible too and I inherited his rubbish feet. Not from jogging for 20 minutes but from my first really active three days in a row for too long! They'll toughen up in a bit until I'm lazy again....! Although learnt the hard way to rest them when they're bad :)

    W2 D2 done. It was fine. W2 D3 is a little step up 1.5min run + 2 min walk x 6. I should manage it ok.
    My 'runs' are slow but I want to be able to complete the time and will work on the pace later.

    Don't worry about repeating weeks. I am happy to repeat as often as I need to. I expect after another week or 2 I might have to repeat but I am ok with that as long as I finish it.

    W2D2 done! Ran by the sea as the sun was going down - was lovely (if cold!)

    Week 5 complete... I can’t believe I did it. 20 minutes was a big mental hurdle for me. Now I feel empowered!

    I'm only on week 2 and I'm already not looking forward to week 5!

    Week 2 complete! We've settled into running along the side of the sea - it's flat and pedestrian only, and has fairy lights along it when dark so ticks all the boxes for the moment - not to mention being beautiful, even on a wet and windy day like today when the and sky are completely grey

    That sounds like a great spot! I go along the river through a park, it's also a lovely place to spend time! W2 day 1 in the morning if my foot is behaving!

    Week 6 run 1 complete. I procrastinated most of today then finally put my shoes on and went out. Felt good once I finally got to it.

    Well done, you're bossing this program!

    Week 2 day 1 for me, really enjoyed it.... seemed easier than the first week somehow, maybe just a change in headspace....

    I think you are right that it gets easier as you go along. So far the first two weeks and beginning of week 3 were the hardest for me. My joints and my lungs were wondering why I was torturing them.

    My fitbit thinks I was fully exerting myself today, but my body/lungs/head really didn't.

    All that gives me any bother is my legs feeling heavy from half way through on....

    I did W3D1 on Saturday distance version- run 200 yards, walk 200 yards, run 400 yards, walk 400 repeat. I also rode my bike on Saturday and Sunday. I am really regretting my inactive winter.

    Perhaps a silly question, but how do you measure the distance? Good work on the active weekend!

    Week 2 day 2 done! Hurt a bit today as I'm sore from a workout but, was more than doable, even at 7am :)

    Week 3 day 1 done this morning. 7 sessions completed. Found it ok. Legs feel a bit heavy by the end but my lungs were ok. I don't run very fast though. Working on time fist and then will work on pace.
    Good to read about all the progress. We can finish this!
