Wk5 run 3 Totally ****SmAsHEd****

Wk5 run 3 Totally ****SmAsHEd****

Can I start by saying Laura I totally love you, you beautiful woman. Well everybody >>Free tax for runners<< :) I didn't just complete the run I totally smashed it to pieces. Woop woop, so much so the police in Cumbria are looking for a man dressed brightly clothed 6'4" practising to be a fog horn.....:)

In my picture the house to the left a woman came out and asked me if I was ok as I was jumping about whoop whooping and throwing fists left right and centre. I told her what had happened and she patted me on the back and said well done hows that for the general public :)

So can I say thank you to everyone for all their support and a big thank you to Laura my bestest running buddy and juicyju for her blog which inspired me so much to start and carry on your fantastic Ju to you all for the comments over the past 5 weeks just for everyone and myself " IVE ONLY GONE AND BLOODY DONE IT :) !!!" I may only be human but I feel like superman at the moment.

So............. Bring on the next stage cause you have a tiger by the tail and he's running :) :) :) :) ;) :)

Well done, WK5R3 is a great one to get in the bag. You will now be thinking that W6R1 is a piece of cake. Don't be fooled, start it gently and you'll be fine, but dont go charging into it thinking its an easy one. We all get surprised by W6R1 ;O)

Looks like we will have to race for her lol

Ha, ha. You're on! BTW, I've been on a downer in wk6 - but have just completed the 25 mins of r3. Just saying this in case you feel down wk 6 too so you're not surprised. Keep your spirits up after the high of wk5 and in a weeks time, you'll be at wk7.

Reply

Sure will buffy cheers can't wait

Jase I thought you'd at least be PLEASED and happy you conquered W5/3?.....!!!! J O K E!!!!!

Bloody well done mate and what a fabulous neighbour to come out and congratulate you like she did. That'd never happen in London. They'd call the police and you'd be arrested for being in possession of a loud top. That said though, keep up the great work and we'll hopefully see you in London next winter at the LWR 10K?!

Sure hope so Dan. It looked like you had a great time too

YES!!! You're a runner now! Well done. Keep on running, bud.
