W5 R3 I feel like a GOD


Not gonna lie when Michael came on to say you have been running for 5 mins I had a wee panic attack but I just kept going and when I hit 10mins I was like “oh yeah I got this”. There were 20 million dog walkers out and I really wanted to shout at each one “I AM RUNNING FOR 20 MINS TODAY” 🤣.

As excited as I am I am also realistic this is very much the beginning but even last week I wasn’t convinced this run wouldn’t take a few attempts.

Excited to find my groove with next weeks runs then head into the non stop running.

P.S. I am officially amazing 😉

You sound really chuffed to bits and so you should, it's great when you do that first non stop run shows you what you can really do and when you think back to wk1 how far you've come keep it up😊😊


Yayyy well done, my turn tomorrow morning. I’m so excited about doing it 🤣🤣

It will feel awesome when your done!

Lol! Yes you are aaaaamazing! Huge well done! I'm starting week 5 tomorrow and am a tiny weeny bit scared stiff about r3!!!!


It really is more mental than physical I realised after 5 mins while my legs felt a bit heavy this was not increasing so I could just keep plodding along.


Loved this post, made me laugh!

Great job 🙌, and so pleased to hear that you are proud of yourself 👏, as you should be!

Take it steady in Wk 6, relax and enjoy.

Enjoy the rest of your running journey 👍😁


Congratulations on completing run 3 of week 5 Emma lynne, onwards and upwards to week 6 run 1 but be careful about that run as it catches out some people with the interval walks and runs 🏃 😊


Damn right you’re amazing... great run there... yes it’s the beginning, your first long run done! Slow and steady into week six and then you got this
