Finally finished W8R3 this evening after couple of attempts, I told myself off that I must carry on when Laura says 5 minutes to go. First attempt at w8r3 the day was pretty hot for some reason when Laura said 5 more minutes my body just stopped without warning, I just couldn't do anymore there was the heat, couple of mums with buggies sharing the track with me which was very difficult, few kids completely block my path I had to tell them to get off the track. 2nd attempt I tried in the evening went okish again when Laura said 5 minutes I blooming stopped the fact that there was no reason for me to stop I had enough fuel to get through the runs, I was pretty annoyed with myself so today my young son and I went out I told myself to get through the run no matter what even if I drop the telling off helps I managed to get through the run even had enough fuel in the tank for another 5 minutes pleased with myself.

Bye weeks 8 and wishing best of luck to all who are starting W8. :)
