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! Pat on the back in return!

  • Well done you! Did mine today, not sure how far I actually got, mp3 died. will try again tomorrow.

  • thanks, and well done! Hope the player recovers and you get to do it again

  • good for you and well done - I am hoping week 6 R1 will seem a breeze by comparison - i shall find out in about half an hour.

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