W6R1 - Better than W5R3?!

Been lurking on here for a while so thought I'd pluck up some courage and actually post something!

I just finished W6R1 today, having read about how difficult it can be on here, and 3.9k later, I survived! Weirdly though, I am more proud of getting through this one than I was W5R3, has anyone else felt like that?

Looking forward to W6R2 Sat!

I’ve just got back from Run 1 of Week 6. I wasn’t looking forward to it after all that I’d read, and it was tough but pleased as punch that I did it! Well done you. You’ve every right to feel very pleased!

I felt this way but I hadn't joined healthunlocked at that point and hadn't heard about w6r1 being harder than w5r3. I was so motivated by knowing that I could run for 20 minutes solidly that I found w6r1 mentally much easier

Yes thats exactly how I felt, I could actually enjoy it because there wasn't any scariness around it!

Well done Becky!! I hated W6R1 with a passion. R2 I knew what to expect. After that it was just straightforward (or not) running about. Sounds like you've cracked this now.

Hurry along to the podium of Everlasting Fame and Gloriousness :-)

There are lots of experiences shared of that one being a challenging run, so you’re right to be very pleased. Well done you! Good luck for the rest of W6 and beyond! ❤️

I saw your other post. Well done on run 2 - awesome job! I’ve just got in. I went out a little later than planned as my kids’ Dad was late picking them up grrrr! This meant it was hot out there. But I did it! Run 2 - done. Roll on run 3 😊

Hey, I’ve just got in from my run. Boy it’s hot out there! Well done on your run. I found it tough but I didn’t struggle to finish either run so happy. We are getting close!! 👍
