After an incredibly difficult W4 I had wanted to repeat at least one more run from that podcast. But when I got to the gym I was feeling confident...maybe it's the distance between today and the last run, I don't know (also, I could not listen to the music from W4 one more time), but I decided to do W5 and I had a wonderful run! Breathing was a bit difficult but not so much that I wanted to stop even once, no stitch, my legs didn't feel like they would give up on me...in fact, at the last minute of the last run I sped up and could have gone on for a little longer but listened to Laura and slowed down. The gremlins did surface every now I then, but I told them to shut up and go away (far less politely). It feels so good after a terrible W4. Onwards and upwards!
