W3 R3 complete

W3 R3 complete

Yippppe W3 R3 complete and as a non smoker too. Started off with 5. Minute warm but I think it froze as it felt like 10 minutes. Decided to run a different route today, passed a friends old house which she died of a brain tumor at the age of 44. As I ran past I said this is for you lisa. This time next weekend I will be doing a 10k walk/run for Marie curie cancer charity. I did get a little tired on the final 3 minute run but pushed through it and here I am W3 complete. Bring on W4. ;-) I sure my new running shoes are on steroids ha ha ;-)

  • Hooray! Great job on your run, and really kind of you to be running for charity!! I hope I will be one day too.

    Also, very good that you gave up the cigs. How long has it been?

    Oh, and very nice shoes! :D


  • Good morning Michael, thank you. Well I guessed that if I signed up to do a charity event I would 1 be able to run in memory of my friend and dad and 2 work my c25k program in the 10k too and plus raise money for a good cause so everyone ones a winner well almost everyone ;-)

    I have been given up for 3 days now. Haven't really noticed a difference except I can smell my perfume and sweat at all times ha ha oh and the money I have saved which will purchase me my new garmin 15 running watch that I would like :-)

  • Sounds like you’re making great progress, Belinda. Good luck for the Marie Curie 10k. I will admit to being a bit jealous as you are speeding past me. I did W3 R2 and had to have a week off due to a painful foot. I’m sure it was because I have been wearing rubbish shoes. I have ordered a new pair and can’t wait until they arrive. I hope mine are on steroids too!

  • Thank you breezie, I do feel I have made progress but I would not of got this far with you guys and your great posts that keep me motivated. ;-) so I have a lot to thank you all for and the c25k program. Awww sorry to hear you have had foot problems. I did have a slight knee injury but seems to be fine at the moment.

    They will be on steroids too because you will breeze through all the Weeks and runs ahead ;-)

  • Opps without. That could of cost me saying with you guys lol ;-)
