W5R3 Boom!!

Well, lovely people. After a day which started at 5am, 300 miles driving to Leeds and back, supporting my fabulous son in his first ever half Marathon (1:59 no less), and 9km of walking during the day, I went out to tackle W5R3 at 9pm tonight when I got home.

I can't believe I did it, ran non stop for 20 mins (12:48 min mile), especially since I was so tired, and had also been out for a fabulous slap up lunch at 3pm....and it's all thanks to you lot.

Having read many posts on here, and all the lovely replies I got yesterday, I had enough self belief to think I could actually do it, and enough motivation not to bail at the last minute!!

Thank you so much to all of you, you really helped me do this. I am taking my running kit to London tomorrow so I can squash W6R1 in on Tuesday morning before work. I would never have believed it!! Addicted.com xx

Well done Sara. W5R3 is a real milestone.

There's no stopping you now but just be careful with week 6, for many people, including myself, it is oddly challenging.

Well done you two. Great job! Yep, take it very steady, give yourself some breathing space, and you'll be fine. No hurry!
