Week 5, Run 3 - In Your Face!

Well I promised I would update my blog as soon as I finished and here I am, still sweaty with my heart beating very fast...and I did it!! :)

Must admit could have cheerfully strangled Laura when she chirped that I had run for 5 minutes!! But having said that when she said I had done 15, I knew I was going to do it and every step felt like a downward run to the line!

It really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I just found it a bit boring. I will stick with Laura for Week 6 and then maybe think about sorting out my own music, as I feel that will be a bit more inspiring for me.

Good luck to my fellow Week Fivers who are doing run 3 tomorrow. You Can Do It! :) xx

  • Well done you!!! :-) See how easy peasy that was? ;-) you will soon grow to love the longer runs compared to the run/walks of the program. I'm sure Laura won't mind getting dumped, onward to another newbie!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS and welcome to week 6!!! Gayle

  • Thanks guys. Can't believe I managed it with no issues. Onwards to week 6 on Monday! :)

  • fantastic!!

    keep on going!

    Having a play list is one of those things a real runner has :-)

    fingers crossed for a good start to week 6.


  • Wonderfully done, Sue!! I love the "In Your Face" attitude!! Keep that attitude up and you will be shining that wonderful "Graduate" badge before you know it!!

    Keep Running!! :-)
