W5R3

Pass me a cape, I’m feeling like a superhero!!! I cannot believe I managed the full 20 minute jog - absolutely buzzing!

I didn’t want to go & was feeling somewhat negative especially as my legs felt achy just walking my daughter into school this morning! But once I got into it - it was perfect!!

I started off too fast and once I did the first 10 minutes I really slowed down but regardless I ran for the full 20 mins!!!

Perfectly timed playlist (by fluke) for the warm down walk, there goes my hero - foo fighters - made my day!!! I’m my own hero today....... didn’t think I was capable!

Well done! I had to slow down second half too - didn't quite get back to where I started.

Onwards and upwards to week 6! x

Brilliant! Well done! According to my tracker we sped up when we turned for home half way through the run. My very tall sister finds slow difficult. She has long legs. I have no problem going slow!

So on to week 6.....!

Well done! So going slow seems to win the day :)

Enjoy your rest day and on to W6 knowing that you can do it if you listen to your body and not your mind.
