Week 5 run3 - I did it!!!!

Despite my apprehension, and feeling a bit tight when I started the run, I did the 20 minutes, and felt I had something left in my legs. The outside of my thighs were starting to feel the strain, but otherwise I don't seem to have any ill effects. According to Google maps, it was 2.7Km. I found my local park run organisation yesterday, and I'm looking forward to being able to comfortably run the 5K and join in!

  • See - it wasn't so bad, was it? Now the fun starts :)

  • I *am* enjoying it!

  • Well Done. It feels great doesn't it (well after a short while it does) . I have week 6 run 3 tonight.

  • I'm looking forward to moving on to week 6 too!

  • You can join Park Run whenever you like, you don't need to be able to run all the way, lots of people walk or run/walk..that 20 min run is a good one though isn't it? I couldn't believe I did it!

  • It was fantastic! I'm impatient for my next run......

  • you will feel sooo much better for doing it outside too! well done!

  • Well done you must be so proud of yourself. I've got my week 5 run 3 later, hopefully I will do as well as you have.😊

  • I had a huge grin on my face when Laura told me the 20 minutes were up!

  • Well done Steve, sounds like you can comfortably run more than half the parkrun distance already so you shouldn't have any problems when you decide to go. You could have a go at volunteering to check it out....

  • Yes! Brilliant. Running continuously for 20 minutes is a big tick for runners so you should be very proud.

    Don't forget to stretch afterwards as that can keep the tightness away.
