Week 3 finished

I did it! Last night I took the advice, walked the 5 minute warm up to the park and embarked on week 4. The 3 minutes felt easier than last week and the 5 minutes felt like a lifetime but I did it! Luckily my breathing was ok; I ran slowly, but my shins were giving me a bit of pain which I pushed through. Pleased with myself? You bet! I am on week 4 for real.

I think sometimes that our anxiety pre-run might account for some of these pains we get. I think we get liked coiled springs with nerves so it's little wonder our bodies tense up and then we get pain

I know it's not easy but do try and chill a bit. Set out with a smile on your face, enjoy ...

Inspiring!!! I'm just behind you (about to do W3 R3) and was also wondering if I should repeat, but reading your question and all the answers AND seeing that you went on to do W4 R1 and achieved it... I'll try and do the same.
