Week 5 has not been the best for me. I felt tired before I even started running. Run1 was OK but R2 was very tough. I wondered how on earth I would make R3. However off I went, earphones now working and Laura telling me I can definitely do it. She wouldn't lie to me now would she? Set off like slowy Mcslow face for the first 10 minutes. Then I got a bit cocky and upped my pace (still very slow) for the third 5 minutes. Needless to say it was back to slower than a slow thing for the last 5 minutes - but I did it!!
I didn't find it easy but actually not quite as bad as R2. Thanks to all the support on this forum, it really does help.
