Very much to my surprise, I actually managed to get through my W5R1 today ... those gremlins told me I was going to die, but I didn't, hence this post. Back in November 2016 I couldn't even do a 1 minute jog and started a 3 week pre-C25K programme / December 2016 I simply gave up, having "failed W4R2" (yeah, I know, practice run etc ....) / Jan 2017 tried to restart at W3R1, didn't work so went right back to W1R1 / 30th January a W4R1 practice run / today 2nd February the slowest run known to all mankind and I could have walked it quicker, but wheeeeee! Without the encouragement here I wouldn't have gone back to the programme in January and since then would have certainly given up by now, so THANK YOU ALL. Meanwhile those gremlins have already started telling me that running 8 minutes at a time is different, and that they'll get me! We'll see, and I now have the experience of doing repeats to get through a run so I'm not worrying as much this time.
