JuJu’s plan W2R1

Hi all, just finished my first run of week 2. I managed 6K in 42:00 exactly so 7:00 per K on average. I’m quite pleased with that in this heat and humidity. 😀👍

One day I’ll work out how to upload from Strava etc to here and start posting pictures! 😉😊

Next step is an unofficial Parkrun of 5K at work at lunchtime on Wednesday - we’ve got marshals and timekeepers so it’ll count towards my weekly target, then I’ll just need a short run of 3K later in the week to meet my quota. Since when did I start thinking of 3K as “a short run”? 🤔😂🤣

Take care if you’re out running this evening. It’s deceptively warm out there.

Enjoy your running everyone 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️. Keep hydrated, and make your runs slow and steady 😇😇

Does anyone else get Strava requests from people they've never heard of? Happened to me a couple of times. Wish people would PM first if they're not obviously known...

Yep me! I check who they follow/followers. If they have other C25kers on there i let them. Think you can set it as private.

I have alot of followers and follow people I dont know on Strava. I always vet them and you cant PM on Strava so thats tricky. I treat it more like SM.

Well done... slow and steady works.... getting faster only seems important to to me if you are a) in a race or b) running away from a wild animal :)

The enjoyment of the run and seeing everything around that run is what matters to me...

You are doing wonderfully... and enjoying it.... which is surely the point of it all :)

Wow that’s amazing pace!! Congratulations!

Hey David, well done on tonight's run! This forum is limited so the only way to share your Strava stats is to screenshot the Strava app. Then when you post you just add photo. Hope that helps! #kudos 😉
