Well done tor41! I have run2 of week 5 tomorrow so the dreaded run3 will be Monday!! Hope I manage as easily as you :-)


I hope so too, we have put in all this work so we are capable - enjoy run 2 tomorrow, I just kept my head down and concentrated on something else (like not tripping lol) -it was a surprise to hear Laura say 1 minute to go, let us know how you get on :-)


HOORAY!!! So pleased for you and gives me inspiration for my run 3 tomorrow. Go celebrate!!!!


thank you Mazzero, very best is wished your way for tomorrow, just take it easy and gradually increase your pace, decrease if it is too much and before you know it Laura is telling you 2 minutes to go woohoo, nothing like it :-)


Well done!

I'm at almost the same stage - W5R2 done this morning. Can't wait!


Very well done, tor41!

And to all of you who are doing W5R3 soon (there seem to be quite a lot here): Have faith in the plan! You can definitely do it! I did it as well and the programme helped me to graduate successfully (and keep going after graduation). If I can do it, you can do it as well!!!

tor41, here's some advice for your next run that might perhaps help you: Some of us (myself included) struggled with W6R1 (it's another interval run). So if you are like me and the next run is harder and/or worse than this one, don't worry! I felt very disappointed but found out after the run that I wasn't the only one who had problems which helped me a lot! So, if it's harder than this run: just keep going! If it's not: Well done!
