I managed to run 12.35 mins before my lungs "gave up" on me 😭😭😭

On the plus side, in January I would NEVER have thought I would be able to run 5 mins, let alone 12.35! Going to do W5R2 -/+ for the rest of the week. I'll be doing W5R3 very soon πŸ˜πŸ˜‰

You are doing great but if you ran out of breath then you may well be running too fast. But there is definitely next time!

One thing that helps me if I'm getting out of breath is trying to blow all the air out - so only taking small breaths in and then blowing it out and then blowing it out a bit more. I dunno why it works but I think my lungs just get a bit full!! Might work for you?

Enjoy your next run! Xxx

My lungs suffered with chemo and radiotherapy...but hey...no excuse, thanks for the advice, will try it again on Wednesday πŸ˜‰

Btw...I'm like you...Pink face and sweaty πŸ˜‚ xxx
