WK 4 completed!

The horror of week 5 awaits! Gosh it was cold this morning - my nose hurt with the pain of the cold - but by the end I'd forgotten all about it. And so slippy - almost walking pace and I had to go on the grass bank, but I did keep 'running' so excited about week 5. This programme is just so amazing - how am I managing it?! Happy running everyone.

  • well done Buffy :D was definitely icy out this morning glad you stayed upright :D you are right it is an amazing program , you should feel very proud of what you are doing :D

  • You are managing it because you've got GUMPTION!!

  • Thanks Both - how lovely to have some praise - don't get enough of that in my life. Thanks, thanks, thanks.

  • It's incredible isn't it?! I have no idea why I'm enjoying this so much but I am! Well done for getting out there in the cold today and for completing week 4. I did W5R2 today and didn't really pay attention to what Laura was saying at the beginning (faffing with my music again!) so I thought I was only supposed to be doing a 5 minute run when it was actually an 8 minute run! Do you know what? It was great and on the second repeat I even felt confident enough to up the pace a little towards the end! I would never have believed I could do it. I've got the biggie next, but I can't wait. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and good luck next week - keep us posted!

  • week 5 is not so scary, take each run as it comes and keep listening to laura and you will most certainly do it.

    You are managing it because you can do this and you have listened to Laura. Good luck with week 5

  • Thanks for the support Vixchile - and to Parky-Park for the 'in the moment' experience. You def sound just how I feel - really enjoying it and amazed at the success. Millions of good luck wishes for your 20mins next week.

  • Thanks, Buffy - onwards and upwards for us both!

  • Fab stuff Buffy, another week tucked under your belt . You are flying ! :-)

    Massive Well done to you, you can do it . Keep going , youre going great guns :-D xxx

  • I can see you are going to be AN ADDICT ! You are managing it because you are doing something for YOU to improve YOUR health and if you do what Laura says you will definitely succeed in graduating. W5 is great, the sense of achievement is quite amazing. Enjoy.

  • I'm so excited! (idiot!)

  • Well done! On all counts! For getting out there when it's cold. For staying upright! And for completing week 4. You will be fine with week 5 too. :) Happy running :)

  • Thanks Hilbean.

  • Congratulations on completion of week four. I'm in the same boat just finished run 3 week 4 however running on a treadmill so my nose is nice and warm. I'm apprehensive about week five but will stick at it.

  • Everyone says its do-able DavySteph, so fingers crossed for us next week then.

  • Buffy I'm crossing everything possible but know it'll be okay. ;)
