W5R3 I DID IT!!!!!

Sooooo chuffed! :-))) I've been absolutely dreading it but reading all the posts on here about trusting in the programme, I gave it a go thinking I can always re-do it if its too much.. But it was fine! Legs got a bit tired in the last 5 minutes but my breathing was ok, and I actually carried on for another couple of minutes after the end to balance out the few seconds of going through gates on my route.

Really did not think when I started the programme coughing my way through 60 seconds of running that I'd ever be able to keep going for 20 whole minutes but I can! :-) And if an overweight unfit late 30's bird can do it, so can anyone. Bring on week 6! Woop!

Woohoo - well done :-) That one makes everyone nervous but it's a massive sense of achievement when you've done it! Onwards and upwards.

Well done. It's such an achievement. I have my 20 min run on Saturday morning. I wish tomorrow was Saturday. I hate rest days :D

Big congrats!!! You must be so pleased! Good luck for next week.

I know the feeling of dread you mentioned for this run as I am currently experiencing it - have the run coming up tomorrow! Reading this has given me some reassurance though.. So thank you :)
