Week 5 run1

Wasn't sure wether to go for run in this weather tonight but went for it and it wasn't too windy in the end. Not like Friday when I felt like I was running on the spot.

Got overtaken by a woman tonight, instead of feeling depressed I thought one day that will be me :). Then 5 mins later a male runner passed me in the opposite direction and I got a wave. That wave made me feel like I was one of them. Like I could actually be a runner, well one day :). And it's all thanks to this programme and the support of everyone on this forum. Feeling good and looking forward to my next run :)

  • We are a friendly bunch really and we all remember those early days

  • Yeay! Well done.. !

    I've been overtaken by men, women, small children and the odd pigeon..what the heck... We are out there, doing it and running!

    Just go for it, slow and steady...you will get there:)

  • I still get over taken by just about everyone but guess what? It doesn't matter!! We are still going faster than anyone sat at home! Enjoy your running and be proud of yourself for getting so far. Happy running x

  • Well done! Just getting ready for my W5R1 right now!

  • Thanks NewLadyRunner.

    Hope your run went well. :)

    8 minute runs for us next then the dreaded 20 min run. Bit nervous about that one but I'll just listen to Laura and take it slow.

    We can do it :)

  • Hi - Thanks! Yes run 1 went well last night ... and not sure about you but I feel so good afterwards - just really chuffed with myself after all those years thinking I couldn't run. Am really worried about run 3! Run 2 will be tomorrow and then run 3 on Saturday or Sunday (depending on how I feel!) ;-)
