I just completed w5r3 and I'm totally amazed I did it!!!! I had been really worrying about it because I knew if I didn't do it I would be so disappointed with myself. But like Laura says it is the mental block that is the barrier.
I went slow, I mean real slow. I probably could have been quicker but wanted to be sure I would do it. At one point I thought a lady walking with her pushchair was going to overtake me but she didn't. I just kept putting one foot in front of the other. I got to the half way point OK then thought I've done half I can do a bit more. Then I had 5 mins left so thought "I've got this far the end is in sight". Got to the last 2 mins and thought " Oh my god, I am going to die!!!!" My legs just didn't want to move any more But I was so close to the end...... "I'll just run to that lampost" then when I did I thought "OK just the next one" Then finally Laura said OK that's it and I couldn't believe it, I DID IT!!!!!
I am so happy and proud and completely knackered. 5 weeks ago I could barely run for a minute now I'm doing 20. Very slow and only burning 250 calories according to map my run but hey THIS FAT B*TCH CAN RUN!!!!!
It's true, believe in the programme it works!!!! To all those who are yet to get to W5 you CAN do it, if I can then anyone can, believe me.
