I did it! W5R3 beaten

I did it!  W5R3 beaten

I know everyone says it, but I was absolutely dreading this run... I felt it looming right from the start but OMG, I just did it! In fact, I had completely misjudged my run so ended up about 15 mins from home at the 5 minute walk stage so decided to run the last 8 minutes home. I wouldn't say it was easy but wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be... The first 3 minutes were definitely the hardest as all sorts of thoughts went through my head, my legs felt heavy, is that a cramp starting... but once I got into the groove it was good. Knowing that so many of you have achieved this already really helped... just trust the process :D

  • Well done! That's such a difficult week isn't it? Mentally probably the worst for me. Good luck next week. I had some problems with that as well but I think the worst (actually looking back it was the best in terms of preparation) is behind you. Onwards and upwards!
