W5R2 Easier than expected

Just done W5R2 and it was easier than I expected. I kept up well with the 8 minute runs and even managed to sprint the last minute. I'm beginning to think I might actually manage 20 minutes on Sunday!

In other news, I had my first "have you lost weight?" comment today. I wasn't particularly doing this to lose weight, but certainly in the last week I've had to keep pulling my jeans up all the time, and when I took them off just now to change into my running gear I discovered I could easily take them off without undoing them. Think I might soon need to go shopping for some size 14 jeans, which was unexpected!

That's great news for you, always good to get an unexpected compliment. You'll probably be fine with the 20 min run because you believe that you can do. Good luck


Thanks! Am actually starting to look forward to it now (I worry about myself sometimes!)


Well done with W5R2 and the weight loss and good luck on Sunday! I struggled with W5R2 but was fine with W5R3 so you'll find it a breeze!
