Wow! I did it. Am away on a conference but was determined to get the r3 in. Where I am staying is very hilly so I drove to a main road that looked fairly straight. Started off really well. New scenery certainly helped and couldnt believe it when Laura said 5 mins gone. That went really fast. Kept going and at 10 mins turned to run back the other way. It was only then did I realise that I had been running down a gentle incline. Not so gentle on the way back. So I slowed and just concentrated getting one foot in front of the other. I felt so proud that I had completed 20 mins. I never would have imagined that at week 1. Fantastic!!
Week 5 run 3 YES!!!!!: Wow! I did it. Am away on... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
The route that I take has a hill finish and sometimes it doesn't feel like I'm moving forward at all but I still try to keep a jog going. Well done! Will you repeat week 5 or are you ready and raring to go to week 6?
It's great when you get that feeling of achievement after that first 20 minute run. Running when at a conference takes a bit of determination, so well done for that too!
Well done , we are both at the same level now .
Aww, well done Mum2. That's awesome - and you sound like a proper runner! I've been at the same level as you and Rockette but lagging behind now due to a monster migraine this week. I've yet to start Week 5 but am spurred on by your achievements!
Such a shame. Migraines are terrible things. I will still look out for yr postings. We started the journey together. Hope yr better now. X
Well done wk5run3. It's such a fanatsic feeling after doing that one. Happy running.
