W5R3 I Did It! 😁

I’m not going to lie. It wasn’t a walk in the park. But it wasn’t a complete struggle either. In fact I even smiled when Laura told me I was half way through the 20 minutes as it didn’t feel too bad at all. My youngest is moving up to secondary school tomorrow so the run was a welcome distraction from the emotions I’m feeling about that!

I’m also back at work tomorrow after 6 weeks holiday...we’ll see how smug I’m feeling then!!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂

Aww, you didn’t fail Sweetpea...you got out there and tried and you’re going back out there again to do it. Failure is when you don’t even try at all! I will look out for your post tomorrow! :)

Thanks Oaktree2 😊x

Yay, huge congratulations👍🏻🏃🏻‍♀️🏆 W5R3 is THE defining run of the whole programme in my opinion. Crack that and you’re on your way. I’ve got it coming up on Friday 😱

Good luck with Friday...I will keep a look out for your post! 💪🏻🏃🏻‍♀️

Well done! That’s a huge achievement! I will be doing W5R3 on Saturday and hope to be able to follow your example! Good stuff!

Embrace the 🐌! You’ll do great! 😀

My W5 R3 is tomorrow. I did R2 last night and enjoyed it but I know R3 is a huge climb but I am determined to get it done.

All the previous runs have been building towards this. Keep the pace slow and you will ace it! 💪🏻. Good luck! 😀

So great to hear about everyone's successes. I just completed w5 R1 today so working my head up to r2. I am getting slightly concerned about my distance completed though. I'm still on same route as w1 which is approx 2k, but I guess I'm running most of it now rather than walking.

Good luck everyone and well done Oaktree2

When you say you’re concerned about distance, do you mean because you’re doing less or more? I added another road into mine which came out in a similar place as my original route. If it’s less distance I wouldn’t worry...you’re pacing yourself well! 😀

I'm doing about the same - although thinking about it I did extend it by a road. Just not sure I'll ever cover 5k! 😄

I wouldn’t worry about doing 5k by the end of 9 weeks. I think the programme is training your body to run for 30 minutes ultimately. After the 9 weeks you can work on your pace. I would say you’re doing perfectly at the moment 👌🏻

Very well done. Well you see, it sounds like you did better than me!

6 weeks holiday?? Are you a teacher then?

I wouldn’t say I did better than you Shubz! You’re my inspiration as I run round.

I’m a T.A. 👍🏻
