Wk5 r3 in the bag.

Still buzzing, was definitely the most mentally challenging run yet but bye far the most rewarding.

2 minutes in I could have given in another 18 minutes seemed impossible. Just thought I know I can do 8, that came and then 10 became my target then it's well I'm over half way, and when I heard the voice say 5 minutes to go the adrenaline kicked in. I was going to do this, I might not be fast or elegant but I am going to be successful.

At 1 minute to go I was already grinning and still am.

What a difference it makes to be apart of a journey, with so many people sharing their wisdom, advice and just good encouragement it really does make the difference.

Not at all sure about this running stuff ... it's addictive! GRRRRRRRRR! Well done. As a still-beginner at W8 that's the real milestone

Impressive, I spend less time in peak and more time in fat-burn .... obviously I should run faster

Think it probably means I'm struggling more than you are lol. Week 8 looks hard but it's a huge accomplishment to be that far through well done the end is in sight.

I meant your W5R3 was the milestone ... I was SO pleased with myself when I managed it. I should definitely run faster LOL (don't tell oldfloss I said that)

Amazing! I've just completed week 4 and I'm nervous about week 5. Just going to take it 1 run at a time. Well done you!!

I was nervous about wk 5 especially run 3 but like you say I take each run as it comes. I'm sure you will be fine and it's not a race so pace yourself. If you are like me I am amazed at every week that I complete so use that confidence to believe in yourself as already you have done great things.

Yay !!! Fantastic , I'm doing wk6 run 1 tommorow

That's my aim too, I really enjoy the runs that fall on a weekend. I leave my house at six and don't get home from work until 7 during the week so fitting food kids and a run in are challenging. But running at the weekend I feel so much more relaxed and prepared.

I'm sure you won't need it but good luck for tomorrow.
