Week 5 Run 2 Done - Now for the Big One!

Really didn't think I could do two lots of 8 minutes, but I CAN and I even managed to speed up a bit towards the end.

Had to do the run on the treadmill as it has bucketed down with really heavy rain all day today. I definitely find indoor running much easier, but I'm still feeling pleased with myself. A month ago I could only dream about running for 8 minutes at a stretch.

Roll on Run 3! Hopefully outdoors!!

Congratulations, knew you'd do it! You certainly should be pleased with yourself.

Suddenly in W5 we seem to be upping the game quite dramatically....I cannot imagine how I will manage to run for 20 minutes the run after next! I just keep trusting Laura and the programme, and the fact that I REALLY want to do this. Fingers crossed for R3: I'm sure you will be fine. Let us know how it goes.


Both of you keep trusting Laura, felt the same last week when I did W5R3 (notice I said did!) just take it steady, it isn't a race and you'll be great and smiling from ear to ear :-)
