W5 R1 done and dusted😀

I've been looking forward to this one🤓 I honestly felt quite confident ( that's an unfamiliar feeling for the first run of the week 😂 ) My mindset going out was pretty much what I've just read Mc fitty say to someone😀 ..... I've done 5 minute runs, it's only 15 minutes running, 1 minute less than last week so get out there and do it👍

I really enjoyed it, not saying it was easy but it's not supposed to be, is it? 😂

I felt fab when I'd finished and for a couple of hours after😀😀

I know the next couple of runs will be a challenge but thanks to this site w5 doesn't scare me anymore, big congrats and thanks to those of you that have recently completed it👍🎉😀

Thanks, I'm looking forward to it too, how crazy is that???😆 I know I've done R1 but I think w5 really kicks in at runs 2+3🙃 We shall see what it brings, but w5 is not the mountain I once thought it was😀 It is true what people say, trust the programme, ignore your head (gremlins) , and , hear we go ...... Slow and steady.......
