Yes I did it! Week 5 run 3

After the first five-minutes which I found the hardest I felt like I was on a roll. I kept up a steady and fairly slow pace. In the end I ran about 22 minutes. Thank you for all your help and encouragement

Feeling chuffed.

Well done! It's a real milestone achieving this run. Lots more running now but you will be amazed at what you can achieve! 😃

Well done! This is encouraging to read, I'll be doing this tomorrow after doing the 8 minute runs last night, it seems like a crazy jump!! Can't stop thinking about it! You must be so happy to have achieved this xx

Congratulations!!!! I knew you'd succeed. When I saw the title of the message I hoped you were the one who wrote it as I knew you said it would be your turn soon. It feels fantastic doesn't it? Well done!!!

Awesome - by week 5 it's amazing what Laura can get us to do! I did W6 R1 this morning, and having been chuffed with my first ever 20 min went off a bit too fast for my first 5 min run, which made the rest a bit harder than it should've been - so well done on W5, don't get tempted to speed up for W6 and it'll be fine.

Well done, it seems completely impossible at the time doesn't it?! But we all seem to manage it :) This programme rocks :) :)
