W5R3 - Doomsday

β€’20 Replies

So this was the run that I'd been dreading and...wow...that was tough πŸ₯΅ Felt great for about 13 minutes, started to burn out so I slowed down a bit and got a second wind at around 15 minutes! Powered through then started to feel a stitch coming on at 18 minutes in so the last 2 minutes I was doing a slow jog but at least I kept moving! A very active day for me today so I will enjoy a gin or 2 this evening ☺️ Enjoy your Sunday you lovely bunch!

Gosh well done you! Your calorie burn is way higher than mine! Even your walk. Hmm, maybe I need to walk faster.😁Well done for for powering through. Very impressive. Well oiled eh....

Thank you! I walk like I'm on a mission so I tend to be very brisk πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Not well oiled at all πŸ˜‚ a long way to go before I am at machine status. Some Eden Mill on the way to help me relax...

Jolly good call I reckon. Try it with aromatic tonic if you can get it. It's lovely. I'm W4R1 tomorrow. Bit nervous but looking forward to it.

Ohh I'll need to buy some next time I'm in the shops! You'll do great, let me know how you get on 😁

Will do.Cheers!

Thank you ☺️


Well done you! Speed is irrelevant, getting to the end of the time is the goal. Enjoy your evening, you deserve it

C25Kate in reply to Thommo23

Thank you! I definitely will 😁🍸


Well done! You can now brag that you ran for 20 minutes.

C25Kate in reply to nowster

Haha thank you! Yes, I'll be telling everyone in work tomorrow πŸ˜‚


Well done but I suggest that a 'slow jog' should be your standard speed from here on in. That points to why you struggled - you were going too fast.

Anytime you're breathing too hard , slow down. Use your breathing and ability to talk as your canary-in-the-mine.

Don't be afraid to 'slow jog' - it's your friend and you'll have a far more enjoyable and relaxed C25K as a result.

I just completed w5r3 tonight too πŸ˜€Well done πŸ‘
