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 :)

  • Good luck, you can do it πŸ˜πŸƒπŸŽ‰

  • 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?

  • Definitely πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸƒπŸƒπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

  • 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.
