Week 3 run 1 in the bag...somehow!!!

Just returned from run 1 of week 3...hard work but managed it which i am very happy about ๐Ÿ˜Š i dont think i have ever felt more cheated when my music went quiet during that first 3 minute run...MJ pipes up & i am under the impression that he is about to tell me that my 3 minutes is up...but no...i really want to stop & he is telling me i am HALFWAY!!!HALFWAY!!!๐Ÿ˜ฃ Any one else feel like that?

Haha, yes, last week when I was doing week 3. With him as well. But heโ€™s such a cool dude that I forgive him.

As the runs get longer you have to adjust to the first in run comment being encouragement and not telling you to stop. A most disappointing development at first. Thankfully you'll be ready for it next time.

Anyway, well done on getting run 1 done, it's amazing how quickly you adjust to the increases in run time.

I swore at him today when he said I was doing really well as I puffed uphill slower than I would have on a zimmer frame.

Iโ€™m in week 5 and Sarah Millican tells me Iโ€™m only 1/2 way through a run. St that moment Iโ€™m really disappointed but I forgive her at the end because sheโ€™s called me flower and pet!

Can't you change the mentor without starting again - honestly I don't think I could do it without Sarah - she's like your kind mate
