W5R3 - 20 minutes! I did it!

Oh my God, I did it!

Thank you so much to everyone for your support on this forum (especially after my little rant after Run 2...see my last post).

Had a really stressful, headache-y day at work and currently buying a house (a horrible process that's been going on for months and months and months because of various issues) and today it just felt so good to run off all my stresses!

I RAN 20 MINUTES!! Oh my goodness, for 5-weeks-ago me to say that would just be laughable - this is amazing!

  • Woop woop! Well done Sarah! Week 6 here you cooome!

  • Well done yourself!! Good luck with Week 5 - if I can do it, you can too! :)

  • Not going to think ahead, just going to take each run as it comes. 5 mins sounds more doable than 20 at this stage ;-)

  • Yup - understood! This time last week I was over the moon to have run 5 minutes!

  • Congratulations!!! It's a great feeling after you complete your run 3 in week 5! Keep up the good work! :)

  • Thank yooou! :)

  • Ha ha! Doing a little dance of joy for you. Well done. I bet that was a blast!

    Yep, nothing quite so stressful as a house move negotiation. It does your head in at times so getting out for a run will be worth its weight in gold

    Take care with your final few runs, go very steadily and you'll be fine

    Good luck and have fun!

  • Thank you very much! We're getting there with the house I think! Touch wood!

  • Well done. I'm on week 7 but I think completing that run is just the best feeling of the programme so far for me.

    Keep it going πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  • Week 7 - you're almost finished, wow! It certainly felt great - I actually punched the air! Haha.

    Thanks - I will! :)

  • Congratulations! I did W5R3 this morning - feels good, right? :D

  • It certainly did! :) Hope you're enjoying Week 6!

  • Yep, I did run 1 last night, and despite it being quite hot and muggy even at 7.30pm, I kept up a steady pace throughout the running sections.

  • well done, hope you enjoy week 6 as much when you can find time for it

  • Thanks! I finished off W6 with Run 3 tonight :) I enjoyed Run 3 more than Runs 1 and 2, which was unexpected!

  • well I confess to enjoying week 6 more than most, probabaly cos I had bad wk 5 r 3, wk 6 r 3 therefore good for me.. cos I was dreading it more soince firts long run had gone so badly but we are all different

    well done nonetheless
