Wk5r3 and grinning from ear to ear!

Just had to post! Can't believe I ran for 20 mins without stopping! 5 weeks ago I could not breath after 60 seconds! I have the bug for running now and so excited for wk 6. Sorry had to share as so proud of myself!!

Well done skinny. You are dead right to be proud of yourself - W5R3 is a huge milestone.

Many people find week 6 to be much tougher than they expect so just take it easy.

Thankyou, I haven't looked at week 6 yet but I will take it easy! I'm a very slow runner and have learnt from people on here over the past few weeks to slow it right down so I'm now at a pace I'm comfortable with

I remember that feeling so well too! It's an amazing programme and really works. Got me off my behind and now love running. Really miss it if I have to skip a session. Plus, I work really well to goals, gold stars and smiley faces - I'm such a child still.
