Wow wk 5 run 3. I did it!

I'm shocked! This is the run I feared most well fear no more. I've only actually gone and done this, I feel amazing. I've never been able to run always found it difficult, made me feel ill and started off my asthma but I can honestly say none of that is happening and I really enjoy it. Feel part of the community now with the local runners always greeting me as we pass.

I do think all of you comments have helped me to complete this run as I've been reading posts about how people feared it and that it wasn't that bad which gave me a positive attitude and I have to agree with all those people. After this I feel I can do anything and I am going to continue with running as I feel great.

Thank you all 👍👍👍

As Oldfloss would say, we have nothing to fear but fear itself! Congrats Sazzlex you've slain the dragon! The thought of that run is far more scary than the run itself. Now you know you really REALLY can do anything. Well done!

Well done! Now you don't have to fear 5k but continue to do it. Some days 5k will feel good and other days it will be a struggle and that is all part of life's rich tapestry! Go celebrate your achievement and ride the euphoria it brings.
