And yes I think my legs started to turn into lead on my last five minute run today, then Sanjeev said I only had a minute to go so I grinned and pushed on up the hill.

Yes..week four completed! Don't know how but I've done it 😊

Not sure if you've peeked ahead, but W5R3 is the big psychological breakthrough of the programme. If you're at all human, take a hankie out with you. Tears of joy are obligatory.

It's worth rounding up any virtual running buddies who are starting W5 and get them all gee'd up; it's a totally brilliant week.

Sanjeev is a brilliant coach with his encouragement and running tips. Perhaps I'll wear gloves ..πŸ€” xx

And he's got a lovely voice lol. And "Fags, Mags and Bags" was a great R4 programme :-)

It's a soothing but quietly excited voice but I have to admit never heard him before but we clicked right away!

I feel like I'm missing out by not trying the other celebrities but I feel quite attached to Laura now. Maybe I'll have to do the whole C25K four more times from the beginning to have a go with each one! LOL.

Heavy legs, but you did it!! Bring on Week 5, you'll smash it!

I have Sarah Millican as my coach and I had the same big grin as you when she said there was only a minute left in that last 5 minutes :-)

Boniobiscuits week five sounds scary but I'm trying not to think too hard about it. Now focusing on where I'm going to run as covering greater distances if I run round the castle grounds like I did this morning I'll be completely dizzy πŸ’«πŸ’« at the end of a week five run!! Looking forward to seeing how you get on Friday!
