I just finished week5 run3 and am so pleased that I managed to complete the 20min run. My eyes welled up a bit when I had finished it actually! Physically, the hardest was the final 5 minutes, but mentally, I found the 2nd quarter the hardest. After running for what felt like nearly 10 minutes it was a real blow when Laura piped in to tell me I was at the 5 minute mark! The next 5 minutes were a real mental battle not to give up, even tho physically I was kind of ok.
I do trust in the programme tho which definitely helps. If I didn't trust it, I wouldn't have believed the progress I could make from 2 eight minute runs to a 20 min. Hubby was proud of me too so that felt great!
