Shocked I completed Week 5 run 3 today, I ran mid morning in the sun and almost gave up. Thank you Jo Whiley!

No... no need to be... trust the plan and have confidence in yourself:) This run is no more tricky than any other.. just take it slow and steady!

I thought similarly when she announced 20 minutes, i thought - "no that's not going to happen". So I put my tunes on, got to 10 mins that was fine, then just kept pushing one more minute I can do this. At about 16 I thought, nope, cannot do this, but it would be a waste not to. So I kept going, "I've got this" I kept saying.

You can do it too! when are you scheduled?
