20 mins running - me!!

I cannot believe I have done it! Week 5 run 3 in the bag! Yaaaay :-) I haven't had the best day and I almost didn't do it.

I don't know if it was a subconscious bad mood in fear of tonight's run but I needn't have worried. I feel on top of the world and am grinning like a Cheshire cat 😻

What a fantastic programme and I couldn't wait to come back and tell you lovely lot :-)

Happy running pe

Excellent! Well done! It can be so hard to get out there sometimes (mentally). But so rewarding when we do. Enjoy your runner's high, you deserve it!!! x

Thank you, it's such a reward in itself once you accomplish it. You're right too, half of this programme is preparing you for the mental challenge of running xx

Great stuff! I remember that week 5 feeling so well ( I was quite emotional **sniff**).

I believe it's definitely mind over matter a lot of the time with this running lark. I can still faff about for ages before finally going out the door for a run!

You are doing brilliantly - keep at it , you can smash week 6 😊☀️👏

Thanks Caroline, I can faff with the best of them too! As long as that faffing (eventually) leads to getting out the door! ;-)
