W5R2 in the bag - secret is new shoes!

Well that was a bit unexpected. I wasn't even planning to run today as I was still a bit achey from R1 and my Asda £10 trainers were wearing a bit thin on the soles. I ordered some new running shoes 👟👟 online yesterday and they turned up this afternoon (Hahaha me spending money on running shoes who would have thought it 5 weeks ago)

Anyway I tried them on and thought I'd better test them and ended up doing my run.

By the way I absolutely smashed it and even did a sprint finish at the end for 20 secs

So happy and proud of myself. Would never have believed it!

Right time to wrap them up in cotton wool and prepare for the next milestone

Good luck with your runs this week

If o can do it anyone can

Ps picture of the newbies
