I did it !!!! Week 5 done :)

I did it !!!! Week 5 done :)

I did it. Just finished week 5 :) I am so happy that I want to cry. Never in my life have I thought I will run for 20 min and I will like it. Have to admit, the last 5 min was hard, wind changed direction and I got it right in my face but I did it :) the happiness is huge :) if I can do it, you can do it :)

Fantastic. That's THE RUN of the program that brings on that big wide smile you model so perfectly! (Afterwards anyway, maybe not during it, especially if it's into the wind). Well done.

I know. Usually I have a wind from the back at the end, so today it was surprise :)

Yes! Much!.... I'm lying, sorry!....some runs will be easier, some harder. Laura will tell you the same thing "there's no rhyme or reason for it" I think she says...

Brilliant well done ! What a knockout photo ! Looks like you were going to floor one of those "Gremlins" that we all talk about. Looks like that Gremlin didn't stop you !!

Bet you're going to annoy everyone with a big cheesy grin all day ! That's what I did (still do it now).

Again well done !!

Fabulous! And really inspiring. I start week 5 on Saturday and I'm really anxious about it because it looks really challenging.

I remember feeling very emotional :o ! Very surprising, after all, it's only running!! Just shows you how difficult the program really is, and proving your metal, makes you so proud of yourself. Well done you :D ! Keep going...xx
