Week 5 run 3 completed!

Feeling great this morning as I have just completed run 3 week 5..... Was very worried that I wouldn't be able to run without stopping for 20minutes...but I did it and feel so proud of myself! It's true when Laura says that you are fit enough and just need to believe in yourself - a real case of mind over matter!! My aim is to complete a 5k ParkRun with my 13 son by Christmas. This is now looking more likely than I thought a few weeks ago....what a great programme this is!!

Very well done, that feeling after completing w5r3 is second to none.

Good luck with w6, it's surprisingly hard psychologically going back to intervals, but you can definitely do it :)
