Week 5 done and dusted

Did run 3 of week 5 on the treadmill at the gym and despite my left calf aching during the first five minutes of the twenty minute run i did not stop and probably could have gone on longer. A few weeks ago I wouldnt have dreamt that I could run for 20 minutes without stopping.

Only problem I have is timing the treadmill in with laura so her five minute cool down coincides with the 5 minute cool down on the treadmill. May ditch laura after week 6 for my own music although will miss her telling me I am halfway through.

  • Can you put the treadmill on manual or is the run pre-programmed in?

    W5R3 is a huge hurdle (mental as well as physical), well one for completing it!

  • Yes you can either put the treadmill on manual or input the number of the programme followed by your weight,age and time required then press speed up to start.

  • Well done. Hope to be joining in your success on Saturday x
