W6R1 I had been warned!

I had been warned!! What was that all about. The first short run, and it was OK, but not as OK as I thought it would be. The next one - 8 minutes, and when Laura said I'd done 4, I though I might as well stop then and there, particularly when she said I should be feeling fine. I wasn't!! - but as always, keep going - one more step, then one more, and I managed it. The up side: My new shoes were brilliant!!

  • ...and you did it! Very well done...slow and steady!

  • You did it, fantastic! On to the next run and I know you will also do that! This week is the last of the walking intervals, then you are on the last stretch to graduation, well done!

  • Good for youπŸ˜„

  • Well done for not giving up mate!

    It is strange how hard that w6r1 can be after completing week 5 isn't it? You go into it with loads of confidence, only to have it shattered half way through by Laura telling you that you're only half way to the finish when you're already on the verge of collapse!

    Good news on your new shoes though, and in the end you did get through it without having to stop, so well done for that. I didn't struggle as much today with my 2nd run of week 6, so I reckon you will find your next one easier. :)

  • Week 6 is a tricky one else isn't it. I remember begging Laura to say 'only one more minute to go' it seemed to take an age! But these final walk break runs are preparing you for the next ones and you've just proved your resilience! Graduation's on the horizon now :)

  • Well done! It seems the trick is slow and steady. I'm so slow but will work on speed etc once I can do the three 5k runs every week. It makes such a difference having comfy shoes doesn't it :)

  • Well Nali

    The main thing is that you did it, you completed the run, so well done you :)
