W5R1 in the bag 🤩🤩

Joined this group after being unable to complete W4R3 and all the positive comments really helped me to believe that not only could i do W5R1 but I could do it without having to go back a week, I am absolutely buzzing tonight after finding the run so much more manageable than I expected, can’t wait for W5R2 now😊.

I did leave 3 days between the runs to make sure I had fully recovered I’d struggled so much with W4R3 not just with my breathing but my legs had felt like lead weights I didn’t want the same thing to happen again and I’m sure it helped me. To anybody else in the same situation I would say give W5R1 a try you might just do better than you expected 😊😊

Well done to you Walswife, glad you enjoyed W5R1 and are looking forward to run 2 of week 5. You can also look forward to run 3 of week 5 as well, that is the 20-minute one that everyone fears, but you will not fear that run whatsoever.

Well done 😊😊
