S#@t I actually did it!


Got off my ass and out of my warm bed and went and did w6r3, a whole 25 mins of jogging (I'm too slow for running). Covered just shy of 4km so maybe I am on track to cover 5km in 30 mins.

I felt a little faint at the 23min mark but not sure if that was pure excitement that it was nearly over I did give a Yelp when it was, I heard it over my music so must have been loud.

I'm now just thinking it's only 5 more mins on top of that run till the 30 min goal.

Well chuffed I achieved that and will enjoy being out out later. Have a great weekend everyone 😍😘👌

Great effort well done, faint feelings not good though, suggests you may nit be getting enough oxygen in, slow down a but, speed and distance will come but not if you're lying flat out 🥴 happy running


What a star! Sounds like you were definitely running, not jogging - we said you could do it🥳 🤩. Enjoy your evening out 🥂💃and look forward to next week with more confidence. Hooray! 🏃‍♀️🤗


25 minutes non stop is brilliant. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Well done you 😊😊


4km in 25mins is wonderful! Well done!

Good to hear, those longer runs are fantastic when you get to the end and realise how well you’ve done


Well done, you're a runner now! 🏃 Don't worry too much about the distance you are covering in the time, just keep it slow and steady so you can comfortably complete the runs.

All runs from now are 25 mins plus so better get used to it now. I definitely struggled that last 3 mins I'd say so hopefully week 7 should sort that 😘

I managed to up the pace in last minute but I’m slow as hell anyway haha!! Yes ‘proper’ running from now on 😬

So glad you did it. Hopefully these next few weeks will be a breeze and you can really settle into being a runner. Well done 👍🏻

Fantastic. Really well done. Into the full on running now, which means... you're into the final 3rd and almost finished.

Hope you enjoy your well deserved night out
