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

  • 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

  • Woop woop, well done you! Such a great feeling when you have a good run and particularly when you finish w5 r3. Onwards, week 6 awaits! :-D

  • Yay, well done! What an accomplishment. I'm gearing up for the 20 minute jog at the end of the week and love to hear these stories from successful people like yourself. Keep up the awesome work!!

  • You will do it I promise :-) oh and it's nice to be described as successful :-) thank you! So are you x

  • 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 πŸ˜Šβ˜€οΈπŸ‘
