W4 R1 smashes

I had been struggling with completing week 3 runs and getting running for the complete 3 mins at the end. I tried repeating runs 3 or 4 times with no success, even dragging the other half out to keep me going. Today however I thought screw it just try week 4 and I completed the whole run without stopping no problem. I had hit a mental block and this was just what I needed to get me going again ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Well done!

The mind is a powerful thing, and it's obviously been playing tricks on you. Well done for telling it to naff off!

Onwards and upwards ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thatโ€™s fantastic! Sometimes repeating helps, but at others you build a wall, as you identified. Great job on that run... hope youโ€™re proud of yourself.
