Just finished w5r3, which I had dreaded so much, and it's true, I could do it! and even had reserves in the tank
Lovely gentle Scottish Sanjeev kholi is right- it's all in the mind. I managed the hills, and kept going. I know I can definitely do 30 mins now- well, when it's the right time!
I even enjoyed it! Spent a fair bit of it looking up at the autumn foliage and listening to the birds... wasn't even obsessing about the time. Hope it's not coming across as a brag, but I'm proper proud of myself. And I might love Sanjeev a little
