Soooooo happy. W5R3 conquered!

I did it, I did it, I did it! Set off with my crazy dog to distract me from the task in hand. The drizzle came at just the right moment, 5 mins in as I start to get a bit warm. I just plodded on and l let my mind wander throughout the 20 mins. I even added 10 mins run at the end and managed a couple of sprints (by my standards). Very happy to have run for 30 mins. Laura had prepared me mentally and physically for this challenge and I smashed it!

  • Big congratulations! Must be a great feeling. My next run will be W5R2 and I'm struggling to imagine that I'll be ready for the 20 minute run...

  • I should have said that Laura prepared me physically & all you wonderful people on here prepared me mentally & for that I thank you all.

  • Well done thats great! Can't imagibe being ready but then again I couldn't have imagined running 8 minutes which I did the other night! Keep it up x

  • Well done you! Thats a great achievement. I hope I can get to this stage in one piece......Ive just completed W1R2.

  • Brillant with the added bonus you know that you can run for the 30 minutes. Smiles all day!! Hoorah!

  • Well done :) I've got W5R3 later in the week and not looking fowards to it!

  • Wow you did week 9 on week 5! Well done you!

    I did the same run this morning. It was not easy. When I got to 10 mins I thought "This is more than I've run in one go before" and freaked myself a bit. But the last 5 mins were the easiest - maybe because I'd slowed down to a geriatric hobble by then :)

    No chance of me doing an extra 10 minutes!

  • Amazing effort well done
