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!

It went really well thanks! How are you finding W4? Just about to do R2 and I’m nervous as found R1 really tough

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!
