My longest run so far

Found it hard to motivate myself to go out on a run this afternoon but felt that I should.

I did the 3rd run of Sami Murphy's week 1 - I think I've done one a week so not exactly 'week 1'.

Anyway, I loved it! I carried on for a little after the end of the 4th 10 minute run, in order to complete 6k. This is my longest run to date and I'm feeling pretty good and proud of it! 😄

Yay., Good for you 😃 It's brill int it. I always run with it, when I run with music that is, but always in longer runs. The lyrics are perfect and can save your life when you are struggling

Good luck with it 🏃‍♀️🙂💪

They are! On week 5 you get three different podcasts. I got stuck on week 4, and a bit bogged down, but I kept going.

I wrote down the tracks somewhere, excluding the walking bits. I really like one of the cool down walk tracks, I love you til the end by The Pogues 🙂

Have you heard Shakira yet? The lyrics on that always make me Ritter

Keep going, slow but sure and enjoy yourself 🏃‍♀️

Don't think I've heard Shakira yet but I admit I wouldn't recognise it/her if it knocked me down 😄

I knew hardly any of the tracks but I love loads of them now

It was, really enjoyed it. I even went out again today, never done 2 days in a row before. Well, it was just a walk across the fields but as I had my trainers on there was a bit of intermittent running... then as I reached the road it started to rain so I ran home 😄
