W3 R3 complete

Belindauk profile image

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 ;-)

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

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!

Awww sorry to hear you have had foot problems. I did have a slight knee injury but seems to be fine at the moment.

Fab stuff Belinda ! I was wondering last night how you were getting on, think of all the money you will save that you can now spend on running gear and stuff ! :-)

Oooh, I love your shoooos , size 5 too, just my size :-)

Keep going , you are doing great, and its so lovely that you are going to do a run in memory of your dad and friend . I did my Race For Life for my dad, I think he would've been telling me off though when he heard me swearing and cursing trying to run up a flippin' great hill, ha ha . He was such a gentleman, bless him :-)

Right Missus, onwards to Week 4 ! :-D xxx
