This morning I completed W6R3. While I wouldn't say I found it 'easy', it definitely wasn't too much for me either. A good sense of achievement.
Then this afternoon I went on a 3km cycle ride and walked up a shortish (but long enough!) and really quite steep hill with some friends. Was I the fittest in the group? No. But the absolute revelation was that I was no longer the slowest one puffing along at the back, asking to reduce the pace! It feels so good to know that my overall fitness level is increasing.
I guess I'm not alone in this, but it's a great feeling. And I still have quite a way to go until graduation!
