The long dreaded W5R3

I started this programme after my partner graduated. I could she how much she was enjoying it and thought I’d give it a go.

I have never run in my life and to be honest never wanted to either. Well I’ve now got the bug and am glad to say I’ve just ran for 20 continuous minutes 😃. I can believe it, at the start I could not see myself running for 5 never mind 20

Looking forward to week 6 now

Good luck with week 6
