The last few days I was a little anxious about the 5 min runs considering the 3 min ones seemed like a really long time but it was okay. Not easy by any means, but possible.
The last 5 min run was the toughest. I had been running for what seemed like a really long time and I was starting to struggle so I looked at the timer on my phone and it said I still had 2 1/2 min to go! I pushed aside the panicky feeling welling up inside me and dug really deep and did it! I found counting my footsteps really helped the time pass, "one, two, three, one, two, three" etc.
Last week the 3 min runs felt really long but today they seemed very manageable (especially compared to the 5 minutes, lol). I'm hoping next week the 5 min seem easy.
