Week 5 r2

You've run for 8 consecutive minutes... twice! Yieeeeyyy... it was tough but not as hard as I imagined... so, just sharing a very happy day... a little scared of next run obvs, not sure I can do it... but also excited! because I'm getting closer to longer runs.

I've been stuck repeating week 3 and mostly week 4 for a while with my travelling and adjusting upon my return (I caught a cold!), but I never stopped and I'm proud of it. Quite nervously looking forward to next run.

Well done.

W5R3 only has you moving between warm up and cool down for twenty minutes, whereas the run you have just completed had you moving for twenty one minutes.

Be excited, not fearful. As you say, you are getting near longer runs........that is what runners do.
