Bad start.....but I did it!!! W5R3

So....I had carefully planned my route for my W5R3 this morning, as I didn’t want to negotiate with any hills. I was excited, yet apprehensive at the thought of running for a full 20 minutes, so it helped my nerves by planning ahead. Alas, as I approached the gate to the field I had mentally prepared for, I discovered that is was locked for ‘goat grazing!’ Meanwhile, Jo was counting me down to the start of my run!.....Aaaargh!!!!! I took a sharp turn to my left, with no idea where I was going, but I just switched off my mind and started running.....and YESsssss! I smashed it. I am feeling so elated and proud right now! Bring on week 6!!!! 😊🏃🏽‍♀️😀👍🏃🏽‍♀️
