Got out this morning while the sun was shining. So cold though so the gloves and hat were back out again although by the end I was peeling off the layers. I remembered what some of you said about going back to intervals after a straight 20 min run so I'd gone over in my head what it was going to look and feel like. The first 5 mins were tiring and o wondered how I'd ever done 20 mins but after the walk I felt great and completed the run feeling strong. Looking forward to the next one ☺

Well done! It's funny that, isn't it? You run 20 minutes without a break and then returning to intervals feels tough. I think week 6 is a major consolidation milestone. It was my toughest week, by far. I appreciate the effort now I'm on week 8 though! It all pays off. Good luck!

I know those first five minutes ugh...not feeling it today so taking a rest and hopefully get out tomorrow evening. I can only dream of week 8....I'm at the stage now where I'm just going from run to run. Well done with your progress...you're nearly there!

You'll be grand. Once you get to the 25 minute run at the end of week 6 you will fly through the rest. Just take it really slowly. By my reckoning, there'll be plenty of time to speed up after graduation!
