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...

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!
