W5 R2

I was a little apprehensive before I started, thinking this is 8 minutes twice! Am I too old for this! So I talked to myself, saying you did 3x5 mins on Monday, you can do this! Go slower if you need to, well I started and after 3 minutes of the first run, I realised I was going a bit too quick, so I slowed downed and finished it and then the 5 minutes of walking! Does anyone else think that seems to last for ages? next up was the last run, I got into a lovely rhythm and just kept going, in fact at the end I thought I could have carried on, but I didn't want to overdue it, so after my rambling! now to think too much about RUN 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Well done! Posts like your really inspire me to keep going!

  • Well done! Sounds like that went swimmingly. Don't overthink W5R3. Same tactics - slow down should you need to, from 10 minutes remember you are counting down rather than up. The programme has prepared you so you'll be fine. :)

  • Slow is good.. soooo good. and steady too!

    Focus on how far you have come and not on how far to go :)

    How old are you ? Not as old as me I'll bet!

    Run 3..here you come... oh, and by the way... you are totally ready for it :)
