Well seeing as this has been resurrected, a little update I'm on week 4 and now running 16 minutes total in two lots of 3min and 5 min splits with walks in between. I've crossed the line where we're now running more than walking. Four more runs and then the first real test - 20 minutes without stopping!! Thank you all for the advice. I'm loving this program, I feel better than I have in years and the inches are coming off, as well as my fitness levels going up. So many people are asking what the difference is and commenting on how well I look and that I've lost weight But what's really great is that I really do love to run. Now that's something I never thought I'd ever say.
