W4R1 ✅

Up and out early this morning, keen to complete this run. The streets were in darkness and I was nervous so I decided to take you all along with me to boost my confidence. I managed the first 3 mins quite easily and was apprehensive about the next 5. I haven't run that far before. MJ assured me I could do it so took Old Floss advice and took it nice and slow and to my amazement I did it. Once the half time bell rang there was no stop in me. I'd got this far and I was going to finish this run. Yes, the last five minutes weren't easy but I did it. So pleased with myself 🙋🏻

I'm sure you will. I had to give myself a good talking to this morning before I left. I didn't believe I could do it so had to get my positive pants on. If I can do it anyone can. 😀

That's fantastic! I've still got run 3 of week3 to do, but in a weird way I'm looking forward to pushing myself in the next week, if you asked me a year ago if I thought I'd be saying that I'm enjoying running, I'd have laughed my head off! But here I am with you lovely lot, getting out there and loving running! Well done, and have a fab weekend with that amazing sense of achievement fresh in your mind! 😊

Congratulations. I bet you feel amazing now!! I've got my final run of week 3 tomorrow due to illness at the weekend and then will be on to week 4 run 1 next week. I am apprehensive also about 5 mins but your success has inspired me. Keep up the good work 😀
