week 6 r1 (the end of procrastination!)

whit whoo managed to do the run, against the odds of a week off, far too much alcohol, rubbish diet and mardy procrastination!

I hummed and haaa'd then headed out, it was boiling, I was boiling, the 8 mins felt like forever, nearly gave up, pep talk with myself through the 3 min walk, and away I went , managed two and a bit laps of the running track on my five min final run, and even bit of a sprint to finish

oh how im gloating (pride before fall and all that, but im sooo chuffed!)

Well done you today, it was warm wasn't it? It is good to gloat - you deserve it!


Well done - I did this run this first thing this morning, and was fine until the final 5 mins, which was sooooo hard. Had a cramp in my right calf and a stitch in my right side, so was probably running rather lop-sided! So proud to have completed it, starting to feel like that 5k is within my sights now.


thanks Beek x

and mandmand, I also got a stitch, my first one so far, but like you I also feel like the 5k is achievable, though maybe not in the nine weeks lol xx
