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 :)

  • WELL DONE! :) The achievement is always the better for being hard-won :)

  • Looking forward to next week 6 :) thank you

  • Well done, you πŸ‘ My turn tomorrow 😨

  • Good Luck x

  • The smile says it all.. very well done... Onward and upward and keep it slow and steady!!!

    Brilliant :)

  • Thank you :)

  • 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 :)

  • I did cry at the end of my 20 minutes :) Well done!

  • Well done! It's a wonderful feeling isn't it? Then it gives you wings for the rest of the programme 😊

  • The feeling is amazing but it was hard work :)

  • Well done, I think every one of us remembers "That" run!

  • Is it easier after that? :)

  • 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...

  • Hooray!

  • 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 !!

  • I think I will annoy people for the next two days :) or till the next breaking record lol :)

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

  • You will be fine. Just do snail pace :)

  • Huge congratulations! I finished w5r3 on Tuesday (start w6 tonight) and I was floating on air for days after. It's a fantastic achievement. Well done x

  • I am still laughing lol

  • well done im in week 4 run 2 tonight so will i hope be in your shoes in a few days time

  • You will be :) good job getting to week 4 :)

  • 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

  • Awesome feeling - congratulations!!
