    Hi lovelies,

    I've added myself to the list as I hadn't done it as yet, going to try and do week 1, day 1 today but I'm going to have to be careful as I sprained my ankle just over a week ago and it can still be funny

    Wish me luck!

    I had a really good run this morning. Even though it was wet out, I still went and really enjoyed it. I started off on Week 3 Day 1 as I had started running before we had all the snow in December. As I said before I'm also doing an exercise DVD too.

    I had no troubles and felt that I could have started on week 4, but I thought that it was probably best to build up gradually and didn't want to push myself too much. Also, when I was running before Christmas I did suffer with my shins hurting and it really spoilt the experience for me. Now, I don't know if it was because I have been doing the DVD and my muscles have improved, but I had no pain at all

    I'm really confident that I'm going to do this and looking forward to completing the 5k and moving on to the 10K app.

    Can I join you all please?

    I started doing this a few weeks ago (I've been doing the 30 day shred too Margery Dawe ) and managed Week 2, Day 1 at my Boyfriends house. However when attempting Day 2 back near my digs in Birmingham City Centre, I encountered three women who proceeded to yell "Eww, look at that", "Why bother?" and "Give Up!" amongst other things. Obviously they thought this was hilarious.

    Needless to say my confidence was a bit shattered and I haven't wanted to go back out running in a busy place. However I refuse to let them win and tonight I joined a gym. I figured I would do treadmill runs when in Brum and hit the pavements at my boyfriends house. Think with the rocky start I could maybe use some encouragement though, so I'd love to join you, if that's ok?

    What f****** *****es (excuse the French). God, I could never imagine saying that to anyone. When I see bigger people out running I think 'good for them, at least they are doing something'.

    I used to regularly see one girl out running and she was a big girl! I'm sure many of people would have has a good laugh at her, but she kept on going and she is sooooo much smaller now.

    Ignore those silly cows, keep at it and then laugh in their faces when you are at target.

    Xxxxxxxxxx

    I'm echoing Marjorie Dawes here! I know how you feel, sooo not looking forward to running round my village (It is pretty small and everyone knows everyone)! But planning to start tomorrow.

    Keep it up though and stay positive!

    Thank You both, I feel heaps better for just telling people about it, I'd been bottling it up until now. I think even they realised they were being cows as the last thing I heard was "That was really mean". I definitely excuse the French though and have added plenty of my own since then too.

    Ignoring them is hard but I'm (mostly) succeeding in turning it into angry motivation... whilst trying not to hope for them to gain weight that is

    I have the same view of it as you, if someone is making an effort to change then good for them! As for me, I'm booked in for my gym induction tomorrow and am planning to try and do Week 2, Day 1 again straight afterwards. Screw You, Horrid Cowbags!

    that is disgusting! You get some thoroughly hurtful people sometimes i think they dont realise we have feelings too and the fact that we are ouit there giving it ago means we are changing our ways. Balls to them hold your head up high and you run girl. try getting a friend to come out with you they wont say anything to people in groups
    well i did week 2 day 1 today and found it easy i think i'd worried myself into that fact i wouldnt be able to do the axtra running but hey i did and im alive and raring to get back out. Im so proud i know its early days but ive tried jogging before and always did one run then would give up so the fact ive been out 5 times means routine and you ladies are helping me to keep going!!

    Thanks Karen. I do prefer running on my own though but with it being so busy and having some dodgy (as well as mean) people near where I live I didn't feel safe with my ipod on. I'll stick to the gym, that way I can run on my own in a safer environment with music

    Well done for completing the first day of Week 2, may the rest of the week be as easy

    Hmm, that sounds vaguely familiar Don't stress about next week yet! You worried about Week 2 Day 1 and you're doing brilliantly so enjoy feeling smug and proud of yourself for a couple of days I'm sure you will exceed your own expectations again next week.

    Plus, don't forget the cool running website that I'm following says that if you struggle with a week at some point, you can always repeat it until you feel ready to move on. Although I suspect you won't need to
