W3R1 in the bag

Never thought I would do this and almost talked myself out of doing it at all after a physically tough morning at work. Thankfully my new slightly more energetic self told me otherwise and off I went. , first 90s run was easy and first 3min run was challenging but managed. 2nd 90s run was ok but then I really struggled after 2mins of last run and had to shout at myself to finish it but finish it I did. Couldn't be happier. I mean me running for 3 whole minutes! 2 weeks ago I would have laughed you out of the park had you even suggested it. Just goes to show what you can do if you put your mind to it. Might go and treat myself to some new plimsols as a reward

Good luck everyone you can do it if you really want it

Great job. Can see the fitness kicking in there with your words... only had to dig in for that last minute. Enjoy the next

Well done, me too! I was like you as well, that last run, after two minutes! I was begging Laura to say I could stop! Lol

I hope it will be for all of us. I am still red free my run (same W3R1), and that last minute was a huge challenge.

It was funny reading this post, as I would read mine that I am just about to write :D The same experiences with only one exception, I wasn't swearing at myself. I was praying my dog to slow down :P
