W5R3 Update: Well I have just got back from W5R3, on my holiday, but it was an epic fail!😭 As I expected, the hills around Stoke Fleming are just too steep for me at this stage, so I had to keep stopping, to make matters worse my app paused itself without me realising, so everything just went to pot after that! Just ended up stopping the app and tasking a steady walk back totally deflated!πŸ˜’

Hills are a whole different challenge so don't let it get you down. Enjoy your holiday and pick up when you get back πŸ™‚

Thanks, going to have a few days rest nowthen maybe go back to easier earlier runs while I’m here, then try run 3 on the flat when I’m home.😏

Oh no, please don’t be disappointed! That run is such a huge milestone, I remember putting it off until everything was perfect to give me the best chance possible of completing it, so no late night, good weather and lots of water beforehand. Have another go when you’re back on home turf, I’m sure you’ll do brilliantly! πŸ™‚

Hi Jackie, sorry to hear it didn't work out for you this time. Hills can be intimidating, so don't be too upset. You haven't failed, you've just found out you're not ready for hills quite yet!

Enjoy your holiday and get back to this when you're back home again.
