After the disappointment of not completing run 2 on Wednesday. That is all behind me as I have just finished the run, went out first thing this morning and found it no problem. This time when Laura said "only 60 seconds to go" I carried on, then at the end of the session I felt that I could have kept going.

Looking forward to run 3 on Sunday.

Thanks for all the encouragement after my first attempt, it helped.

The first 2 weeks I ran on Mon, Wed & Fri, then had 2 days off. Since then have been trying to go every second day so that I completed week 5 before my holiday. Off on Monday, no room for trainers as only taking hand luggage instead will be doing lots of walking.

Well done. It's amazing how this program sets you up week by week ;-)


You might kick yourself if you don't take running shoes. They can double us as walking shoes!

Have a lovely time!


Good for you and it's great when you feel that you have more left in the tank. Not sure I could go anywhere without my running kit now!


Last time I flew "hand luggage only" I wore my running shoes for the flight (just keep the laces loose for security). The also doubled up as comfy walking around shoes.


Got to go with others advice running shoes are now an essential for me on holiday. Well done on W5R2 and enjoy your holiday


Well done - we all knew you would be able to do it - good luck for Sunday :0) (and enjoy your holiday)
