The dreaded week 5 run 3

Have just completed this run after work after telling everyone all day how much I couldn't do it. Well I did. Followed the advice of the guys on here to slow it down and before I knew it, Jo Whiley was telling me times up. I'm so buzzed I could cry πŸ€ͺ

Congratulations Foodbaby on completing run 3 of week 5, it is no longer and never was dreaded. Run 3 of week 5 is a milestone run with C25K.

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 πŸƒ,I bet you will be buzzing for the rest of the day 😊.

Hi this is my next run- week 6 run1 - I keep reading it catches people out but in what way?

After the long 20 minute run of week 5, run 1 and 2 of week 6 are back to a few interval walks as well as runs, as long as you don't go too fast you will find those two runs to be OK.

Well done.........but why spread the unjustified "dreaded" myth?

It is just another run............but a bit special.

Well done! I did cry when I completed this run! It was more of attending point for me than graduation, to be honest. Enjoy week 6 πŸ‘
