omg wk 5 r3 done

actually cant believe i ran for 20 mins today, when laura stopped the music i thought she was gonna say u only got 1 min left but she says u only got 5 mins to do i wanted to kill her but i battled on and finished it, still strugglin to get enough breath sometimes but am hopin that will get easier, i actually feel like all the hard work has paid off today, never thought 5 wks ago i'd be running 20mins, so everyone out there who are maybe strugglin a bit stick with it because this plan really does work....wooo hoo :)

  • Go you! Doesn't those last few minutes go sooo slow? When she says you've done 4 now only 60 seconds left, you think... yes! almost done and you run and run and run lol

    But anyways, Well done! My 20 min is up in 4 days! eeeeeeeep :D

  • thank you, yeh the last min seemed to go on for eva, good luck for your :)

  • Well done :)

    I have that run 8am tomorrow - oh dear! Not sure how I'll manage but everyone on here says they do so fingers crossed!

  • i nearly talked myself out of it because i was convinced i wasnt ready for it but i bet you surprise yourself and do it...good luck :)

  • thank you - you were right, I did it! :)

  • well done, :)

  • Ha ha, this made me laugh. Much as I love Laura's encouragements on the whole, as the runs get longer sometimes I want to say out loud 'oh COME ON!' at the halfway point announcement.

  • Ohh I scream slightly naughty things at Laura... though not as naughty as I scream at TomToms Jane!!
