Yes, Yes, Yes. W2R3 in the bag 😊

I am so stoked tonight, after finishing week two, and tonight wast half as bad as Wednesday.

I run at 10.5Km/hour and walk at 6Km/hour. Wasn't out of breath at any point and my heart beat never got above 150, and always dropping back to 100(ish) for the brisk walk.

Can't say as a particularly looking forward to Sunday and W3R1, but I'm not worried by it.

My local wildlife park are having a 5km run mid October, raising funds for the animals, I'm considering putting my name down ... and stepping up to the challenge ...

Sounds like you are going great guns with a great attitude.

If you sign up for the 5k, do make sure you have done some running outdoors beforehand......it is very different to a treadmill.

Do you have your dreadmill set to a gradient to better synthesise running outdoors? It makes the transition easier.

Thanks for the kind words Ian, and yes I do have the dreadmill set on an incline, only to 2% but it adds that bit of extra pain that will be beneficial later on I'm hoping ...

I'm guessing I should be on Week7 by the time of the run, so easy does it, and don't be ashamed to walk some is my thinking ... and collect a medal for passing the finish tape ...

I don't think it's unrealistic, is it?
