W5R3 done and I cried!!!!

Up at 5 to complete week 5 before heading out to work. Was a little apprehensive but just kept telling myself slow and steady will do the trick.

I DID IT!!!!!! And when Laura said just think 5 weeks ago you never thought you would be able to do this I just burst into tears. Happy and disbelief tears. I DID IT!!!!!

I know my pace was super slow but so what I ran for 20 minutes and for now that is good enough.

For all you lurkers and newbies out there just do it, believe in the plan, listen to Laura and go for it.

Roll on week 6

You are fantastic! Congratulations. Slow and steady is the way there.


Well done. My planned 20 min run is tomorrow. Terrified to be honest but encouraged by your success


Congratulations - you know you can get to the end of the programme when you've done that one! :)
