Well, of course I had been dreading stepping up to 5m runs, I thought I had reached my limits with last week's 3m runs. Decided to give it a go, and if necessary repeat until I could do it rather than hang about doing more week 3....... and I DID it! Was very surprised that I managed to keep going for all the runs. I listened to the lovely Laura and took her advice about pace - I was going very slowly, but I did keep going!
Am feeling newly enthused! Only 3 weeks ago I had to do my utmost to run for one minute - now I ran for a total of 18m, as Laura says, now spending more time running than walking! Yippeee.... maybe I can do this! Anybody reading this who ihas newly begun with the programme, have faith - you will amaze yourself, and that's a great feeling!
