Really upping the challenge this week and am pleased to report I am handling it. Can't believe I can now run for 8 minutes without stopping or breathing my last!!

Well done! 👍🏼 I’ve just done w5 r1. Worried about the 8 minuter on Sunday!

Hi. I did week five run 2 last night. Talk to me about the next run please 😹 Like you I can't believe I ran for eight minutes. Twice.

Hi. W5R3 is a 20 minute run which feels like a massive leap. Slow and steady and you will do this and feel pumped (and knackered) by the end!! Worth the calf burn!!
