W5R3...done & dusted :)

Went out as soon as I could after work today, before I had time to think of an excuse!

I knew what was coming...but pleased to say both me and the dog achieved the 20 mins.

When Laura said I'd done 5 mins it felt like it should have been much longer, but we got there. Had a bit of a stitch, sort of in the background and not bad enough to make me want to stop and felt like I kept a nice steady slow pace.

Week 6 starts Sunday, hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend :)

  • Oh that's fantastic! I'm so pleased for you AbracaDeborah. By the way, I've referred to myself as your username before. Funny. Anyway huge congratulations!

  • Ha ha! Guess you're a Deborah too then? I'm mostly a Deb, but I thought a magic spell might help me in my running quest :)

  • Yep. I'm a Deborah too. I agree, magic would have helped with the first couple of weeks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Well done ABCD - you're over the "hump" as it were.
