Tonight i completed the infamous week 5 run 3. I took on board all the great advice that ppl so kindly posted (take it slowly and focus on breathing) GREAT advice thank you all. Like most I had real doubts that I'd be able to complete it, I know that's very common with this run but I have an artificial leg which can complicate running sometimes.
Anyway to cut a long story short this run IS a battle with your mind well it was for me. If you take it slowly focus on your breathing you will do it. I felt SO GOOD at 15 mins that i changed my route to take in a hill climb and a semi-sprint in the last minute, i had another 5 mins running in me (i think). So i did 2.7km over the 20mins I'm still pinching myself tbh...thx so much for all the great advice and support this forum gives and god bless the NHS without it i would not have the prosthetic leg or Laura to get me this far!
BRING ON WEEK 6!
