To my utter surprise wk 5 run 3 is in the bag !

How did that happen?!

I must say I was very apprehensive about this run but somehow I found the grit to finish it. At around 10 mins I thought il never ever finish this but then it just all fell into place, the rythm, breathing, and the stamina all just clicked and I did it! The wind was against me but was also cooling me off so every cloud has a silver lining so they say. Wow just wow I'm in shock and even my thigh muscles aching like a gooden can't bring me down from this high!!!

  • Fantastic news! So jealous, because I'm only doing w5r1 today, so I have those 20 Minutes to look forward to :(. But it is so good to read everyone's comments; that is what keeps me going every time. Well done Leanne, you are an inspiration!

  • Thank you,

    Yes I agree it's keeping me going too reading all the comments and posts in here.

    Week 5 will be better than u imagine, you are prepared for this and you CAN do it(even the 20 mins)

    Looking forward to hearing your progress !

  • Ahhhh bless you. New you could do it pal. Went to Decathlon in Croydon today and bought some new running trainers. Very pleased. Let me know if you are interested in going and I will go with you. They test you on a treadmill to see what trainers suit you best xx
