Wk5R2 I did it 😊😊😊

So proud of myself for running for 8 whole minutes without stoping...TWICE!! I woke up with a sore throat and very little energy so really had my doubts but I did it!! I had to detach my mind from my legs to just keep moving. Worried that I'm coming down with something. I really don't want anything to get in the way of me completing C25K 😊

  • Well done I found this run particularly hard and it's one I will remember. Good luck for the next one πŸ‘

  • Thank you 😊

  • Well done. I did the two eight minutes and couldn't believe I'd managed it, it shows how trusting in the programme works. Yesterday I did the 10/10 run with a 3 minute walk on W6R2 which I never would have believed was possible when I started.

  • Thank you 😊 It's a fab programme πŸ‘πŸ»

  • Well done, but better to rest up if not we'll. You won't lose much if any form.

  • Well done you πŸ‘πŸ» I think positive thinking really helps. Hopefully after a days rest your symptoms might have eased 😊 I'm going to give wk 5 r1 a go tonight so fingers crossed! 😁

  • Thank you 😊 Ooh good luck...hopefully you will love it as much as i did! Run 3 is planned for Friday so hopefully 2 rest days will sort me out 😊

  • well done you...I just did wk5 run2...it's tough, and like you I don't want anything hindering progress, so really good luck, hope you don't go down with anything. Keep well, and good luck with run 3 😎.

  • Well done. Fingers crossed on the sore throat. Plenty of fluids and listen to your body, missing a couple of days is better than pushing yourself too much if unwell, getting sicker and missing longer.
