This morning I told my OH no matter what he has to make me go for a run this evening. So when I got home from work I was making a lot of excuses to not have to go do the dreaded w5r3! But eventually I found the motivation and so began the 5 min warm up walk. I decided not to go as fast as I would normally as I wanted to keep my energy, but soon Laura's voice was telling me to run........
So off I started at a slightly reduced rate to normal with 20 minutes feeling like an eternity!
But slowly and steady the time went by and then before long I heard 2 minutes to go ....... then Laura telling me I did it!
I am embarrassed to admit that I did burst into tears as the feeling of relief of managing the full 20 minutes was too much for me . Then I think I was smiling from ear to ear as I finished the slow down walk.
So if anyone is worried about Week 5 Run 3 I would advise to just take it slow and if I can do it anyone can
Onward to week 6 which is where I failed last time so hoping to start this Thursday
