Wk6 r3: a great run


So thats wk6 in the bag and the last run was brilliant. I really enoyed it! 22mins of running! I set out at 8km/h and held it comfortably without pain or doubt that i would make it. I felt strong mentally and physically today and was just ready to smash it. The last minute came round and and i still had enough for a 12km/h sprint at the end. I can't actually believe the difference from 6 weeks ago. It's magical.

I managed just over 4km.

Sounds like you're doing really well, keep going!

Magical is absolutely the right word. Your joy shines through your post. Well done.

Running 22mins at any speed covering any distance just seemed insane a few weeks ago let alone looking forward to a full week of 25min runs! Madness :)


well done, it sounds like you are doing brilliantly :)

sounds like a really good pace, very well done! :)


This programme really does teach you that you are capable of so much more than you previously believed. KEEP IT UP.

Thank you all, means alot to me :) Combined with weightloss over the last 4months im feeling the best i have EVER felt. Onto week 7!


Brilliant! Best of luck. I'm slightly behind you and don't think I'm quite as positive but I'm sticking with it!

It's a journey, thats how i look at it now. I have had some really tough weeks, mostly in my head, on the way but have really found the big runs give me a massive boost in positivity. I'm generally pretty pessamitstic, which makes it all the more funny.

Keep going, you'll get that buzz!


Thanks...I get a buzz when I finish each run! I just can't believe I've done it. Whatever it is 😊I don't know if I'll find the long runs manageable or not. I'll find out on Weds/ Thurs!

Just keep it nice and slow, you'll be fine :) you've got this far!
