How to crack W5R3... But needs advanced planning!!

Well, I completed Week 5 Run 3 today - the dreaded 20 minute run - and it was a breeze!!

I didn't think of my legs, think of my breathlessness, or doubt I could complete at any point!  How is that possible? Am I a closet athlete?? Am I Superman in disguise?? Am I a big fibber?? No, none of those... 

My first grandchild was born this morning and I ran on a cloud of happiness all the way round!  At last, the secret of cracking W5R3!!
