w4r1 you're a tricky one!

Today was a real test because it was chucking it down with rain and I didn't really fancy it. But as always, you just get on with it don't you. So I did it, the 3 minute hurt so I didn't hold out much hope for a 5 minute but I did it! I did it and ran for 5 solid minutes argh so proud. Also so achey haha. But anyway. Done, done done 5 minutes running in one chunk is dooooone :) I always run around the park and 5 minutes took me one complete circuit of it, woohoo I ran around the whole park! Admittedly it's not a huge park but the fact remains I ran around it without stopping. Had to slow way down to finish the second one but it's all about the stamina for now, once I can do half an hour without stopping I might think about going faster, for now it's just getting it done!

Well done! You did great!!!! It's such an achievement isn't it. Knowing you've finished and Laura telling you that you did a good job. The rain can actually help keep you cool but do wear a hat! So, to run 2. Bring it on ey. Happy running


I succeeded with the same run yesterday, to my delighted surprise. It's a great feeling, isn't it!


Brilliant, well done. I bet you felt great doing a full circuit, good luck for coming runs.
