W5R3 😭

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 😁😉

You did fine, don't worry about it, it was just 'training'! 12.35mins running is really good :) . You will def 'bosh' run 3 soon I'm sure! :)

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
