W5R3 I only went and did it ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Canโ€™t quite believe it!! Running for 20 minutes....me..... itโ€™s amazing!!

First 5 minutes felt quite hard, 3rd 5 was definitely the easiest. Last 2 minutes was hard but so great to hear Michaelโ€™s voice saying to walk.

Iโ€™m elated now and very rosy ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Thank you all for your support so far ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you back to run/walk on Monday. From what a lot of people say the find W6R1 hard. Iโ€™ll soon find out ๐Ÿ˜Š

Itโ€™s tricky, not hard as such, pace yourself well, run slow, walk brisk... I think avoiding too much cooling and any kind of speed was the key for me. Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ll be just fine and ever so proud of yourself afterwards.
