Well what to say! I was actually quite nervous about these two eight min run's. I thought I would manage one and crawl the other.....but, by the power of grey sk, sorry ginger skull! I have made it!

I actually managed to increase my speed albeit very gradually in the last minute of each run session! I have stretched, rolled my calves, showered, eaten and now I'm very, very sleepy..lol. Though I have to say I will resist for a while longer, after all there's the washing up to do....thank you Dear Wifey......Lol

All the best everyone

  • Well done, all set up for the big run next, you can do it. :-) look forward to reading all about it :-D

  • I did W5R2 today... and it felt great! I feel like I had a bit of a different mindset today, as the 8 minutes went by really quick. To think it was only 2 weeks ago that I thought 3 minutes was a struggle!

    Bring on the next one! Calm and steady will get it done. :)

  • Very encouraging - I am due to do W5R2 tomorrow. R1 was easier than I expected but 8 minutes is a long time !! Looking forward to it.

  • Wow, I'm due for W5R2 tomorrow too, so this is very encouraging. Thank you!

  • I'm off to do W5R2 in an hour or so .... fingers crossed I will manage too! :-)

  • Just back from W5R2 ... can't believe I did it! :-) Tough but happy. No idea how I'll manage the full 20 mins next time :-0

  • Well done dale and all you other fellow wk5 r2ers! Bring on the 20 mins (raises he man sword above head in dramatic super hero way) .....
