Oh me of little faith

Yee Haa

W5R3 completed an hour ago. Never in a million years did I think I'd complete a 20 minute run and not be dialling 999.

It's definitely a mental thing this running. The weekly program deals builds up the physical side of things as long as you follow the program.

Off for a nice soak now.

You can do it everyone. Think positive and listen to Laura

Yee haa indeed! It is a fabulous feeling, isn't it? It can be a battle at times, especially if your body aches somewhere but how good do you feel afterwards?!

Unbelievable isn't it..?. There you are at the beginning, and now here you are..

Onwards and upwards...go you!

The mental battle is tough at 5/6 weeks but definately does get easier! Well done that runner!🙂

Me too! Well done - it is a marvellous feeling, particularly if you are a complete exercise virgin. Don't let week 6 blues hit, remember you did that 20 minutes!

That's a great run isn't it? I was inspired to start the programme by a friend of mine who wrote a blog about his journey. I remember when he said "well, I can run for 20 mins without stopping now" and I thought, we;ll maybe you can, but I wouldn't be able to....but I could and I can and the programme is brilliant isn't it? Well done you too!
