W5R3 I DID IT!!!!!!

Can't believe I've actually ran for 20 minutes without stopping! Had a complete panic beforehand. Thought I'd downloaded the W5r3 podcast on to my phone this morning. Thought I would need this for the run as i didn't know how I was going to run on the treadmill for 20 mins! However the file wouldn't play. Grr! Also couldn't find the arm thingy thing that you put your phone into. Thought I'd just carry phone but no podcast so just had to go cold turkey.

And I did it!

Nailed it!

Hammered it!

YES!!!!

Absolutely delighted of course.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all your encouragement.

I am now looking forward to this weeks' runs 😀😀😀😀😀

Excellent!! Well done, happywalker! Especially as it didn't go to plan at the start. Not sure I could do it without Laura. If I am Dumbo, she is my magic feather. I go tomorrow. Feel like there's a queue of us and I'm next to bail out of the plane.

Enjoy the rest of the day and have a well earned rest.

Thank you for the virtual cake offer🍰🍰🍰

Going out for a meal tonight 😃. We have to be proud of ourselves I just don't want to stop now over halfway through, never thought I'd stick it this far. The support on here has been immense. Don't think I'd have achieved all I have without it.

All the best for this week 😃
