Hi all, I am so pleased I completed this run yesterday. I had a good break in the weather, which helped,, although it was still windy and hard running against it. At times I felt as if I was stationary but I just kept going. I was pretty nervous as it is a big leap from run2 but as others have said I just reminded myself to have faith in the programme. I kept thinking of all the different names I have seen on here and tried to remember as many as possible and that just kept my legs going. I tried to picture everyone all jogging in the park together and that certainly helped me. My recovery after was so much quicker than its been before, even though the run was for longer, although I did go very slowly. I did manage to lap a few dog walkers- so I can't have been too bad!
I am mindful of the fact that some of my buddies on here are unable to run at the moment, and I really do feel for you, I know how good this programme has made me feel so far, so I wish you all a speedy recovery and hope that you will be fit to get out their again soon. Forgive my boast about my Wk5. Oh, I nearly forgot, I opened the door to my postman just after I got back and he said 'going for a run' and I beamed 'no I've just got back'. Six weeks ago I never would have thought I would be saying that! Chuffed!
