C25k – W4 – Done!

So with the disaster of a cycle this morning, I  decided it was time to attack W4D3. And it turns out the treadmill is a lot easier.

Cup of tae later she had convinced dad that he needed to do some exercise, so ride 3. There were a few times I even had to pedal with him, he’s not afraid of a bit of pace.
