W3 R1 Never thought I'd do it!

I have just done my first ever 3 minute run! At the end of week 2 I was only just managing 90 seconds in one go, so I never thought I would manage 3 minutes - but I did! I am so pleased. I am just starting to believe I can become a proper runner - and at the age of 60 as well!

Its amazing isn't it! Each week I looked ahead and wondered how it could work but trusted in it. You get such an amazing sense of achievement each week! Happy running!

Tough but I am doing it - R1 really hard but now I know it is achievable my mindset is better! I have also changed my route to get flat roads! If you managed R1 I am sure you will manage the rest of the week - keep at it!
