W5R3 Done and Dusted

Thanks everyone for all your tips - I did the 20 minute run today and it was absolutely fine, just like you've all said! 

I went slower than usual from the outset and it was (obviously) a challenging run but Laura breaking it down into 5 minute segments on the podcast was really helpful. When I passed the 15 minute mark it really spurred me on and I picked up the pace a bit back to my natural running speed. Felt really exhilarated finishing the run.

It's amazing what running does for your self belief, I would never have thought this would be possible 5 weeks ago.

Bring on week 6!

  • Brilliant :)

    The funny thing is we said it to you because someone told us- and when you graduate you'll be telling newbies ;)

    Slow and steady is THE way to get through :)

    That run is a great turning point- you know you can run :)

    Well done :)
