Week 5 is done!

Looking back into my previous posts I can see that every third or second run was "extremely hard". Well, that's not so true. The truth is the W5R3 was extremely hard. I've almost given up somewhere in the middle. To be more precise, it's happened when Laura said: "10 minutes done, you're in the middle".

I don't know how, but I did it. I run for 20 minutes. Yoohoo!

  • Fantastic!! You must feel so happy. It is the most wonderful hurdle to cross in the program and I know that you won't believe me yet but when you get to 40 mins everything falls into place and you feel like you can run forever. No rush though yet you have done the hard bit and enjoy it!! Well done and good luck :)

  • Well done, its a massive jump from 8 mins to 20 mins but you did it you must feel great. :)

  • Well done you, having just one run to do in week 3 I love reading inspiring posts about future runs. Keep it up and keep posting x

  • well done you! slow and steady now you're over halfway through :-)

  • :) Well done! It's a fantastic run to get under your belt. Keep going - you're over halfway through the program already, but give yourself 5 minutes to pat yourself on the back and look back to how far you have come already.

  • Fantastic, well done! Hopefully I will have that same response and feeling in about 2 hours when I will also (hopefully) have completed week 5 run 3

  • Good luck! :-)

  • Thank you - just got in now from my run.........I too can run for 20 minutes 😀😀😀

  • Congratulations and welcome to the Club of 20 Minutes! :-)

  • Thank you for posting that - I start week 5 tomorrow and am more than slightly nervous as my last attempt at W5 ended with a calf injury and nearly two weeks of no running- which I really missed and I used to hate running!

  • I believe you will succeed! Just try switching your brain off at a right point :-)

  • I felt the same when I did this one and I can understand where you are coming from. It was hard but somehow week 5 was fun.

  • Well done!! :-) in fact I just completed my week 5 run 3 today! As you said, I had never thought I'd be able to do it, but I did it! Definitely feeling good... Just like you! :-)

  • Great feeling, isn't it! :-)
