Week 5 run 3!!

I'd been dreading today's run...I really didn't think I'd be able to keep going for the full 20 mins. It didn't help that the podcast mysteriously jumped back to the beginning twice during the warm up walk, so it was a bit longer than 5 mins! Well, somehow I did it...the last two minutes were the hardest, and I never quite knew what Laura was going say next about how long I had left. But I did it! I felt completely shattered, but felt prosecco was in order after finishing week 5!

    Congrats again and good luck with week6!

  • Thank you 😊

  • What a way to end the week! Congratulations - W5R3 is such a milestone. You can do anything now.

  • It does feel a bit like that...thank you!

  • Great job. That run is a big one and it feels so good when you get through it. Keep at it and you'll be fascinated by what you can do......

  • Thank you - it's interesting that wk 6 starts with walk / run / walk again, but not for long!! I wonder how it will feel? Well, I'm hoping to go out first thing tomorrow before it gets too hot, so we'll see!

  • This run is the best. It makes you feel so proud and is the run you can start boasting about. I loved it. Good on you for achieving it. Congrats

  • I've certainly boasted on Facebook, despite keeping fairly quiet until now! But 20 mins felt like a really big thing 😊

  • Very well done, Juliet. Just listen to Laura & all will be well. Prosecco well deserved!

  • Thank you. I can't imagine going out without ' hello! I'm Laura!' now...πŸ˜‰πŸΈ

  • Well run! I was dreading this run, which meant completing it was all the more sweet.

  • Thank you! I'm still going quite slowly but have decided that I'm more likely to last out that way! Also I have no idea of my actual speed and don't want to depress myself 😊

  • Congratulations !

  • 😊 thank you, jabellik.

  • Well done Juliet, I know the feeling of wishing to hear Laura's voice tell you there is only 60 seconds left, and even they feel more like 60 minutes sometimes, but you did it! I think the prosecco was well deserved, good luck with week 6!

  • Thank you - yes, I just keep counting randomly to take my mind off the last but and it seems to work so far! Better than that ridiculous song saying ' my feet are on the ground'...well mine aren't, that's the point😊

  • Bubbly definitely in order!

  • It was very lovely. Felt great to have finished that run!

  • Well done Juliet ! You have overcome a major milestone there Missus ! :-)

    I shall toast your success with a cup of Yorkshire Liquid Gold , Cheers * clink *

    Youre doing great, keep going ! :-) xxx

  • Thank you *hic* ...I certainly shall! Tomorrow morning, if it's not too hot! Watch this space πŸƒπŸƒ
