OMG W5r3 ✅

It's done! If I wasn't there myself I wouldn't believe it, wooo hoooo! Give that woman a big pat on the back. I nearly didn't go, took the dog for a walk hubby had made me a cup of tea when I got back and it looked like rain but I thought it's now or never don't waste your progress from no exercise.

On went the gear and out the door I went!

So chuffed that I just kept going, even managed a few mornings to dog walkers and a smile ☺️

I didn't look pretty and here is my shade of red but I have a big grin!

  • You look wonderful and many congratulations on the the run as this one is more a mental barrier than a physical one!!

    Well done 🌟

  • Thank you

  • Big well done to you! It really is a fine achievement, that one! x

  • Will take inspiration from you. Should complete Wk5 myself this week....

  • Good luck, didn't think it was possible but just proved myself wrong!

  • A great big running milestone that you have worked hard to achieve.


    Show caution and respect to W6R1.

  • Will do, I'm very good at following instructions 😁

  • Congratulations! Keep on going you can get to the end@

  • Thanks I am loving this!

  • Well done. I finished week 4 yesterday and took a sneaky peek at Week 5 after reading some of the posts - good to know it can be done :)

  • I hope week 5 goes well, keep us posted 👍

  • Thanks for this as I will be completing Wk5 this week 😬

  • It is definitely mind over matter. I just took inspiration from others. Glad my post shows it can be done even for a 56 year old newbie to exercise of any sort!

  • Yeeeeees!!! Well done you. Such a brilliant run to complete. Hope that smile keeps you going al day!

  • That's a great colour to match a great run. Well done you

  • Brilliant run - cracking w5r3 was key to my confidence that I could do this running thing - love the photo

  • Thank you. Next week looks easier but I bet it isn't!

  • Well done Cornet-Carolyn, that’s the kind of dedication you need...& we like it!! You’ve done better than me coz it took me 3 attempts at that cheeky little run!! Now, whenever I’m running & i get to the 20 min mark I always think ‘that’s W5R3 done!!’ ...keep at it, you’re doing fantastic 😉

  • 😊

  • Yay well done you, you look fab Carolyn 😁

  • Thank you

  • That’s the big one out of the way when you realise you can actually do this.

    Plain sailing from here.

    Just keep it nice and slow and enjoy the rest day.

    Well done you!

  • Just done w6r1 that was just as hard, 😂

  • Brilliant. Well done you!
