Week 5 run 2 done and dusted :)


Yipppeeeee I did it oooooommmmmggggg legs were a bit tired but honestly think there is a bit left in there so have come to a momentus decision. One day soon lol haven't decided when yet lol am going to run along my local seafront because from one end to another is just over a mile and it has little signposts to tell you how far you have gone. I reckon this distance outside for me is achievable as I have only ever run on a treadmill. If I write it down and especially for everyone here to see and me then I have sort of committed myself and I kind of have to do it :( wish me luck will keep you updated on my progress or lack of

Great, congratulations! Just posted elsewhere that at least 3 of us girlies would have this one done by tomorrow! I'm just back from a horrid, hectic day at work.... Will venture forth with new vigour and a warm, toastie neck and face warmer ... Tomorrow! (I have no access to an Indoor treadmill). Awwww how I envy your seaside venue. Lots of luck X


Go on bite the bullet and get out there for your next run, its much more interesting than a dreadmill!! The thing is if you don't manage to run it all you can still do a little bit longer a cool down which I'm sure you would manage. Good luck for W5R3


The seafront beckons... and we'll be "observing" you do it in style.

Enjoy your day of rest, do not get het up about W5R3 and enjoy your running. :-)


Hoping to do my W5R2 tomorrow. Should have done it today but was struck down with sickness big yesterday so though I should have an extra rest day.

Love the seafront idea!

I too completed W5R2 yesterday. Am so proud of myself and I felt like I could've run another 8 minutes!!!! Am a bit nervous about the 20 minute run tomorrow but after yesterday I feel I will do it :-) (I never thought I would be saying that 5 weeks ago!!!). I do mine on the treadmill mainly because I am nervous about tripping up on uneven pavements! I did the first 2 weeks outside but much prefer doing it on the treadmill as apart from the uneven pavements I got fed up of stopping to cross roads and waiting for cars to go pass!! Keep up the good work!

Well I am doing mine on Friday should be tomorrow but am working a long day and don't think my feet will be ale to cope with the dreaded 20 min run. Will post and let you know how I get on good luck to you all
