Week 5 Run 3

I've just completed run 3 of week 5 - I can't believe I did it without stopping. I am so pleased. I never ever thought I would be able to run for 1 minute let alone 20 minutes when I started C25K!

I live in the country and I ran along the side of two fields, along the way I saw 6 hares, 4 pheasants and two horses - I think they helped distract me from how much more time I had to run! Feeling fab now. 👍

  • Congrats!! Well done, that's a huge achievement! I know because I did it yesterday :D Onwards and upwards, to infinity and beyond!

  • Yippee 😀

  • Well done must b a great feeling can't imagine getting to that I've just finished week 3

  • You will do it - I never thought I would. Keep going.

  • Feeling determined plus I've done it before don't no how I did it then. 😁

  • My next run is W5R3 and saw it was 20 mins, seems a massive jump from 8!!! I'm terrified!!!

  • I was really worried about it too, didn't think I would do it without stopping. You can do it!!

  • Your run sounds amazing both because you aced that 20 minute run and because of all the lovely flora and fauna you saw en route. Happy running!

  • It is lovely seeing the wildlife - those hares can run so fast! Happy running to you too.🙂

  • I am back again and just completed week 5 run 3. How I went from 3 to 20 I have no idea. Running slowly, very slowly was the key I think so not really sure it could be classed as running but I think I covered about a mile and three quarters with the 5 min intro walk so not great in terms of distance. If there was a steps per minute threshold I would fail that one. I wasn't walking but I wasn't running either. I think I have invented a new sport Trot 2 5K. Maybe I can move up to a canter in week 6 :)
