Another run with our coach at work - Knackered

Just me and our resident coach running at lunchtime today. Halfway round I was struggling with a stitch and feeling like a lead weight. I told Matt I was struggling and he just said he wasn't surprised as we were running almost at his training pace. YIKES.

Recovering in the office now. Very tired, but feels good to have completed the circuit and gained a load of PBs on Strava :)

Thank you Claire. It just shows what you can do if you have someone pushing you. I'm feeling I might have overdone it right now though....

Oh dear...😕 make yourself a nice cup of tea & be safe in the knowledge that you wont have to go out tonight & do it instead 😊

Not having to go out tonight isn't really a plus. It would give me a few minutes peace!
