Week 5 run 3 - surprise 😲

β€’30 Replies

Well with runs 1 and 2 done this week for week 5 I was looking forward to run number 3.....But as you runner's who have done this already will know what surprised me... I thought a little increase was coming but no.....

However after the shock I made my was round and to my delight completed run 3. Delighted I had achieved so much I never thought I would and am sat here writing this very happy indeed.

Well I now more confident than ever and look forward to the next challenge...

Have a good weekend everyone...

Thank you thank you


Gotta love a surprise 🀣. Of course you got another one... you went and ran it... seeing just how much more you can do than you think. It’s an emotional run... I shed a tear after it... but it’s also very empowering. Gotta be loving this new confident you? Great job. Slow and steady into week 6 and you got this... enjoy!

Loved the feeling after doing it and felt happy

congratulations on completing run 3 of week 5. I am doing it in the morning and I have to say I'm feeling pretty nervous about it!!

Thank you ...how was it !

It went ok thanks. Pretty slow going but I dug deep & managed without stopping.

That’s really good to hear as I have completed run one of five and run 3 is for 20 mins straight so this gives me a little confidence ✌️

Runs 1 and 2 of week 5 set you up without you even knowing that is happening....

You will smash it .....

Well going from interval training run, walk ,run , walk to runnnnnnnnn has given me so much confidence.


That’s brilliant. I finished say 3 of wk 4 today and had a sneaky look at what was in store for next week - nearly died when I saw the 20 min on day 3!!!! I’m thinking there’s no way - but maybe there is!!! Thank u!


When I saw 20 mins I thought no way, but runs 1 and 2 prepare you so well for run 3 ...wish you luck and you will smash it .....πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
