Yey!

Thought I'd have to have 4 days off but I crept out of the house this morning while everyone was still sleeping and did W4R3...it actually wasn't as bad as I thought....I did walk a little bit on the first 5 min run & for about 30 seconds on the last 5 mins so I think I will go over W4 again

So me looking forward to your post happened much sooner than I thought. Couldn't take that extra day ... you are addicted. Well done , it also sounds to me that maybe you don't need to do all of W4 again, the extra walking not so much. But I am not an expert, it just seems you're very close and maybe W5 would be okay? But whatever you decide to do, have a great run next time out

Channel your inner ninja, people on pavements invariably are looking at the floor. You can whoosh past them and they won't even know you were there...

Well done MummyCav😊...

Can just imagine you tiptoeing out with your running shoes to get your run in before mummy duties start😄...

You did well, could you have gone a bit slower for the 5min runs?

One more successful go at it would secure it... take your rest day first of course.

Then onwards and upwards😉

Extra brownie points for running today.x

Awww, Thankyou...I could maybe have gone a bit slower...but I felt the second 5 minutes a bit easier...I've read somewhere on here about '2nd wind' and when I read it it made sense because through previous weeks I've always found the 2nd run the easiest....well, I use the term 'easiest' lightly!!!!! That's exactly what it was, sneaking out before mummy duties start!!! Having three children is busy & running can take up a chunk of the day at the weekend...but it was nice running early on.😊😊😊

If you need to, because you want to have done it all, properly, then just do the last run :)

You are doing amazingly ... onward and upward x

Well done. I agree just do the last run again. It will give you confidence for week 5 knowing you have conquered it. 🌻
