W5r2 done!!!

Well completed it and boy was I happy 😃. I haven’t ran over 8 mins since I was in the Navy 20 years ago. Well now the big 1 is Friday, won’t lie I’m nervous but I have faith in the program and I’m sure I’ll push through it.

I am at exactly the same point, only spotted the 20mins when I got home, it was a bit of a shocker, also planning to do it on Friday so hope all goes well for you and me both

You will both be fine. Go off slowly and just keep going. Stubbornness if nothing else.

But ive found the start of every week quite daunting and have coped fine so far, it seems to know what its doing so if they say we're ready we're READY!!! Good luck on Friday, will hear how it goes👍

I’m with you, cheeseheads. I’m stupidly excited about it though, and can’t wait for Friday to arrive!

We’ll smash it. 👍🏻 💪🏻 😀

Well done cheeseheads. I hope you’ll love the final one of W5! Personally, I will always remember that one of the big highlights. So incredible! Best wishes to you! Enjoy! ❤️

You can do it! I’ve just started week 5 and don’t even know how I’m going to run 8 minutes

I'm at the same point as you, dreading Friday, but excited at the same time, can't believe I've come this far already, at the start I found it hard to run 60 secs, but the programme works, good luck for your next run, you'll do great.
