I feel so achievey!

W4R1 completed this morning, and I am thoroughly pleased with myself. It seems pretty normal to be trepidatious before having to up the length of time you're running for, but it still feels so great to have run for five minutes in one go. The first five minutes didn't even feel too difficult (except for one poorly timed hill) and my other half, who's on week 7, said I looked really strong doing it. The second five minutes were really hard, but as Laura says pushing yourself through the hard bits is the best way of improving fitness. Anyway, I just needed to preen to someone other than my partner, so he doesn't get too fed up with me.

  • Well done (and I love the title!).

  • Good job!! That's my next run too, glad to hear it's survivable

  • Well done you - achievey indeed! I think so many of us felt the same looking to the next week but, as you've found, trust in the programme and you'll get through :)

  • Well done - preen away here, you know we understand! ;)

  • Brilliant. Both the run and the new word. I like achievey - sums it up perfectly.

  • Sometimes you just need to make up a new adjective to accurately describe a feeling.

  • Preen away - you deserve it :-)

  • That's one of the many wonderful things about this place , we can all celebrate everyones successes !

    Well done , and yes you should be sooo proud of yourself ! :-) xxx

  • I don't find out in advance what a run entails. I work on the basis that if I managed the last one the programme is designed that I can do the next one too. But just in case I always complete the first one v slowly. Well done on your progress you are doing great.

  • That's probably quite sensible, but I don't think I could possibly resist finding out what's up ahead. It makes me nervous to see what's coming, but also quite excited to try it. And thank you!
