Week 4 run 2!!

Pardon the beetroot face but after dreading today I was happy to complete it! Dunno if I’d say I “enjoyed” it but I certainly have a sense of achievement after feeling this run a bit easier than the first one!! One run left before week 5! Yay!!

Well done for completing your run. This was one of the best weeks for me, I loved it. And you still have a smile on your face, which must count for something :) You're doing fantastically, and you're going to love week 5 when you get there. Really - trust me!! Just remember it's not actually a race, just a gentle run at whatever pace you can sustain.

Yeah I have slowed down this week and seem to found a pace I can sustain for the 5 minute runs. At the end of the last 5 minute run I probably could have carried on so I’ll take that as a good sign!

Did w4r1 today and didn’t know how I would get through it. For the last 90 secs of the final run I found myself yelling at me ‘you will not quit!’ I made it and felt fab. Rest day tomorrow

And where you are on Fri 😭

You can do it! I felt like my legs had much more in them at the end of today as supposed to the last run. I was dreading today as I was sure it was going to me more of the same... but I felt definite improvement and you will too 😊
