I felt ready.
I had done the W5R1 and W5R2 for the second time this week. I had reduced running speed to just slightly more than my briskiest walking pace.
So much so that I was not even sweating by the time I was finishing.
And I felt ready for W5R3.
So I went for it on the trusty treadmill.
With Laura's voice in my ears and my playlist blaring away I kept going...and going...and going.
And when I reached 12 minutes with 8 minutes to go, I knew it that this was the one!
At 15 minutes, I was ready to celebrate.
And at 19 minutes, I still had enough gas in my tank so bumped the speed up and finished the 20 minute run!
Thanks to everyone for your advise.
This is certainly a day to celebrate. Can't wait for W6 and W7
