Don't worry about the next run , all the runs you've done up until now have prepared you for it. Well done ๐Ÿ˜Š

Don't fret about W5R3 as you've prepared for it. If you're fit enough go do it. Hoping Sunday post reads done it.

You can do it. You've already run for 16 minutes with a 5 minute brisk walk in between, next time out you run for 16 minutes with a 4 minute run in between...

Just take it slow, then post about how you never believed you'd be able to do it... Go on... I dare you too... ๐Ÿ˜‰

We've all been there and we've probably all felt the same way (I definitely did). You've got this...

I repeated in my head Iโ€™ve run for 8 mins I can do 10, Iโ€™ve done 10 I can run 12 etc etc and then before I knew it Sarah would say youโ€™ve got 60 seconds left. Just keep it slow and steady. You CAN do this. Look how far youโ€™ve already come x ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ
