To give hope to anyone who’s scared about the 20 minute run in week 5 - if I can do it, you certainly can!
I have been nervous about doing this ever since I found it was coming up, and have put it off by repeating runs 1 and 2, feeling as if I really wasn’t ready to run for 20 minutes straight.
This morning I had no more excuses and just went for it - and it was GREAT! Felt tired by halfway, but slowed it down, and when the time was up I actually felt as if I could have kept going. This is amazing as I have found every increase until now a struggle.
Trust the programme, it works miracles. I am 45 and haven’t run before in my life (enforced school runs around the playing field aside). Can’t wait for next week!
