This morning I did the final run of week 5. I was quite philosophical about it after the time I've had recently with non-running related matters, as most of you know. I kept it nice and slow, very steady and decided to just try to enjoy it. When Laura said there was just five minutes to go I somehow knew I was going to make it. When told there were just two minutes left I lifted my head and gradually lengthened my stride. It might have been the last run of W5 but it was the first run since signing up for the R4L. In those last two minutes, with my head held high and my lengthening stride I felt in my heart that I was now an athlete in training for my first race. Good luck to those doing W5R3 in the next few days. Stop worrying - you'll be fine. Happy running one and all. Best wishes.
