W5R2 4k Mind over matter

Plotted a simple there and back 4k and was looking to break 24 mins which I managed to do but was running on empty for the last few hundred metres, the gremlins were out in force but then I thought of all my lovely running buddies who were telling me that I could carry on and so I did, it really is true you may run by yourself but you are never alone! So thank you Ripcurlrana71 HoagyM ju-ju- Sutsha and all the others and Oldfloss I promise I will be back to slow and steady on Sunday!

That’s brilliant - so very proud of you buddy!! 💪🏼💪🏼 It’s exhausting but rewarding. Chill out and enjoy your well deserved rest day. 😊 X

Terrific run VRB, and that’s some pace! Well done. Mixing up the short and long runs is definitely the way to go.

Brilliant run! You don't need to worry about slow and steady now graduate! 😉You're in Ju-Ju's camp now and you'll want to introduce short quick runs focusing on intervals / fartleks, a mid-tempo 5k run and THEN a slow and steady long run. Ju-Ju won't put you in detention, don't worry! 😉

Great run, well done! 🙂👍Fantastic time, and you showed the gremlins who’s boss too! 😀

Yes, best go slow and steady on Sunday 😊 Looks like it’s going to be a hot one again 🌞😎 Good luck with your next run! 🏃‍♂️🤞
