I can't believe it but I have just done run 3 of week 5. After W4 I felt a bit despondent as I struggled with R3, managed to complete it but felt rubbish so wasn't sure whether to try W5. Thanks to all the amazing support on here I was encouraged to give it a go. Managed R1 and 2 ok then went on holiday to the Peak district with a friend who is a runner. Went running with her on Tues and Fri and managed 15 mins each time without stopping. Not the 20 mins I was supposed to do for R3 but for me a great achievement for 2 reasons. Not only was this the first time I have ever had the confidence to run outside but some of it was up quite a steep hill and I managed to get to the top!!!! Back home on my treadmill today and I've just completed R3, I'm so happy right now
