Week 5, Day 2........Done!!!!

Eight minutes twice, who'd of thought it. On a treadmill I wouldn't have bothered writing this snippet! but for someone who found running outdoors on the hard tarmac so different, and so hard that a minute seemed like an eternity, but I've stuck with it and feel fairly confident that the W5D3 20 minute run is within my capabilities.

  • That's the right attitude to see you through. Once W5D3 is complete you will know you can achieve the full 30 minutes, it's just a matter of putting in the miles (or km). Waiting for your next post......:-)

  • Well done! Remember to go slow for your next one and you'll be fine! Let us know how it goes!

  • It certainly is. Well done.

  • I've done it, I've done it, I've Done it!!! Week 5, Day 3 completed at 05.42am this morning. Decided to get up at 5am today to attempt W5D3 thinking that I have more energy in the morning than at night. I was near bounding during my warm up walk and was thinking that am I gonna go too fast. But no, steady paced round two laps of my local, near deserted, park and twenty minutes continuous running to "The Jam - Greatest Hits". Back home and treated to Mrs J to breakfast in bed.
