Week 3 done in the 5am biblical rain and wind!

Well I hope if nothing else I get points for effort!! :) I am a day early in finishing week 3 but wanted to get it done so I went out this morning. The alarm wasnt set until 5.50am giving me 10 mins to get up and out and to run from 6am - 6.30 before a dog walk and then getting ready for work. But my border terrier Teddy decided at 5am he needed a wee and prompt sat by the bed punching his little paw against the duvet until I took notice. So out i went earlier than planned in horrendous wind and rain. I genuinely think I would have been drier if I had stood in the shower fully clothed. It was hard to run in the driving rain but week 3 is done. Found the whole of week 3 easier than week 2. I wouldnt say it was easy but easier. Not sure if i want to do one more run for week 3 or move straight onto week 4 on Wednesday. Feels strange to be nearing half way through but I can only run for 3 minutes. Well its time for breakfast and to carry on drying off:) Might see how I feel but really do want to move onto Week 4 soon:) Happy Monday everyone.

Eleven out of ten for commitment! I'd have taken one look out the window, said "tomorrow will do just fine" and gone back to sleep!

Hi there, well done I am on week 3 aswell, did I understand Laura properly only 2 x 3 mins runs and 2 x 90 secs it just seemed so ok that I thought I must have missed something out??

No thats right. 5 min warm up walk then 90 secs run, 90 secs walk, 3 mins run, 3 mins walk and then repeat all that. Scared about upping this to 5mins on Wednesday!!! EEK.

Thank you:) It took my mind of thinking about how long I had run for because I was too busy laughing at myself running round looking like a little drowned rat. I had to squueze out the water when I got home but I had to go out. Lets hope it clears up by Wednesday!
