W3R1 Woop Woop πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Well I got myself up early after my night shift so I could do my first run of week 3 today. And I can't quite believe it but I did it πŸ˜† I took all your advice and slowed it right down to what I quite call snail pace. But I didn't stop before Laura told me to, which to me is what counts. So so happy I went with it, thank you all for your support and advice. Can't wait for Friday ☺

  • You're so right, running until Laura stays stop is exactly what the programme is all about. Well done, it's a great feeling isn't it? :)

  • Well done. Laura knows what you can do even when you don't :). Slow is the key. Apparently speed comes later :)

  • Well done you πŸ˜ƒ

  • Yeeeeeeessssssss! Punches air. Slowing things down is the way to get things done. Leaves you with room to breathe

    Great stuff. Now have a rest and plan the next session. Enjoy it! This is fun

  • Oh my goodness, just finished my first run of Week Three and I was lumbering along. Absolutely lumbering! So I am glad to hear that others are not skipping along like a gazelle, but also feel they are going slowly! Thank you for your post!

  • Well done!!! You've surpassed me now as I've been in the US for the past week so I'm starting Week 2 again. It doesn't matter how slowly you do it, it matters that you do it! :) Are you doing W3R2 today?

  • Hi Grubby, yes I did W2R2 today ☺ gonna post about it in a minute. It felt good though ☺. You could always try W3R1 and see how you go. You never know πŸ‘
