Wk 5 Run 3 - I Did It!!!

I can't believe it. Been worrying about this all week, I Kept re-reading everyone's lovely encouraging words and got up early this morning and just went for it.

I must have paced myself just right as I never felt so tired to even think about stopping. I find getting the right rhythm breathing and running quite hard, I probably concentrated on that more than anything.

Great to end the hardest week so far on such a high.

Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me till now, especially redfraggle1 - it's all your fault (ha-ha) x

  • Fantastic well done on getting through that one

  • Oh, well done. I just posted that I had done my 20 mins this morning and then spotted your post. I was amazed that it was easier than I thought it was going to be. Well done again and keep going :)

  • Fab stuff, so well done to you. You'll be on that cloud all day!

  • Very well done - that's a real milestone run!

    Pacing and keeping so that you can breath comfortably - they are always the key to long runs.

    Good running - and good luck for week 6!


  • Good for you. It's a breeze after the sixth week. You've done the hardest part

  • You did well. Congratulations

  • The posts are fantastic especially when you face a hard week, well done, you have learnt how to pace yourself for a longer run. Isn't it awesome, you ran for 20 minutes non stop!!!!!!! Week 6 is still challenging, nothing u can't handle though. Repeat the same again. I have graduated now and ran 5K yesterday in 35 minutes, I was nice and slow through the programme and then my speed picked up naturally. Julie

  • We can all do more than we think......you just proved that!!! Congratulations.
