Hi Jo, The NHS recommends heel striking and wearing cotton. So you will end up overheating and get dodgy knees...

I was up and running by half 8 again this morning in order to avoid the heat. I am feeling unmotivated today. I didn't run as well as the other day. I was slower and it felt harder. I don't know why, nothing was different. I guess I just have to chalk this one up to experience....
Good luck Jo! I did that plan and used to think I was going to pass out running two minutes continuously, but it definitely gets easier, so stick at it
Went on my first run in the rain this morning. I surprised myself by actually enjoying it. I also underestimated how many people would be out and about in the park considering the weather- I was expecting a nice solitary run but I was mistaken! The run went much better than the previous one, which was unexpected due to the increase in running time but it was quite comfortable. My pace is still pretty slow but I figure its best to focus on increasing fitness and length of time I can run for first and before concentrating on speed - do we think this is a good strategy? Week 2 is completed and I am pleased with my progress so far
Well done Jo
Completed Wk2 Day1 this morning, was pleased with myself especially as I felt like I was going to die during Wk1.
I am also very slow, but that could be down to being 50 and fat . In fact I'm that slow I think I was passed by a couple of Tortoises and a snail this morning
Unfortuneately yes, their advisor is an administrator at a YMCA.
