Week 5 run 3 - 20 minutes - done!


Very tough but got there and boy does it feel good. I've been really worried that this would be the one to beat me but I did it! I'm glad I went out early though - 7ish. And had a lovely bacon sarnie for breakfast afterwards - well I think I earned it. 2 days off then on to week 6.

Good luck to everyone else facing the big one - it really is possible! As Laura says: trust the programme and believe in yourself.
