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!!
