What a shock to see it jump from 5 to 8 min run πŸ˜‚ I thought I would be doing the same as my last run, which felt OK!! instead of panicking this time at the thought of it I just went out and did it, struggled for a start then eased into it, still can't quite believe I'm actually running for this amount of time when I think back to my first few runs!! Its getting quite addictive 😊

Got this run to do in the morning, seems a jump but so did the last one.

Onwards and upwards

Well done for not panicking and literally taking it in your stride!

Thankyou ... You'll be fine, just think when you get to 5 its only 3 more mins and you can do it 😁 good luck tomorrow πŸƒπŸƒ

Wel done you. I have my W5R2 tomorrow - hope it goes as well :)

I have decided to have an extra rest day and do the R2 tomorrow. :)

Well done you, there's a few of us at thereabouts the same stage. I did mine this morning and the sense of achievement of the 8 minute wonder is great. We'll be graduating soon and then anyone up for a virtual drink?

Of course, good idea :)


Week 5 is a milestone week. You will feel very proud of yourself when you've completed it.


You keep repeating that you just can't believe it...........time to eradicate all disbelief in yourself and the plan, take a deep breath, grit your teeth(but only in a very relaxed manner) and relish the challenge ahead.

You CAN do it, if your head lets you.
