W5R3 - Completed!!!

So I did it today. I don't think I've ever been so sweaty in my life as I was when I finished it, and I was a shade of purple seldom seen in nature, but I did it!!! I can run for 20 minutes!!

I felt utterly knackered through most of it, but the last 5 minutes was the easiest. Then afterwards I got a huge buzz and didn't even need a sit down to recover.

Well done Olivia! I'm like you, completed W5R3 on Saturday and I couldn't believe I did it ...... the first 5 mins was the hardest, it seemed to go on for ages!! Great achievement, pats on the back all around :)

Thanks. Apparently the W6 intervals are sneakily difficult... I hope they pass well for you today, and I'll find out tomorrow!
