W5R3 done ! 10 feet tall !

Today I managed Week 5 run 3. Was pretty worried about it, as I felt the jump to a 20 min continuous run was a big one ! partly got through it as I'd read posts here that talked about the training was designed to build up to this, and therefore totally possible to do.

Done it !! When I think about when I started this, and I could only run in 20 second bursts, then I've come a long way !!!

Decided to stick to my normal route, rather than a new one, and it worked fine.

Well done! That's another run ticked off

Week 6 up next. Go steady with this. Slow but sure has to be the motto here.

Good luck. Enjoy yourself!

Congratulations - I remember that run well - couldn't stop grinning. You can't actually believe that you are able to run for that long.....good luck with Week 6 - just keep it slow and steady and you will do great :0)

Well done! That's a real big tick in the box and should give you some real confidence for the rest of the programme. Slow and steady though, don't get carried away. There's plenty of time for speedier stuff later.
