W5R3

After thinking of every excuse not to go ... it’s a bit hot, my legs are tired from cycling yesterday, I’ve got a bit of a sore throat, I’ll do it on Sunday when it’s cooler even though I know I won’t as I have 3 children and 2 dogs to get out and about ... I decided I would go and try and if I don’t manage it I can just put it down as a practice run.

After all that I did it! It was slow and it was steady and I loved every single minute of it and I’m so pleased I didn’t let my mind talk me out of it!

Happy sunny Friday everyone I’m off to buy some running leggings as I’m still running in my normal clothes at the moment 😃😃

On week 5 run 2 and making all the excuses you were (minus 2 kids and 2 dogs). You've just inspired my to throw them away and get out. Thank you

Yay Bridget. You did it. I'm planning W5R2 tonight and then Sunday it'll be W5R3. I'm so excited to try my new shoes. It's nice and sunny but cool here so that's just fine and dandy.

You’ll be fine I really did think it was going to be harder but as soon as I passed the 10 minute mark there was no way I was going to stop 😂😅 🐌

Nor could I imagine it yesterday. I just went really slowly 🐌 and as soon as I was halfway I knew there was no way I was going to give up! You can do it! If you feel really tired just go even slower. You will do it 😃
