Week 5 Day 2

Slowed down. Did it. More to the point enjoyed it!! Dare I say this but we both said we enjoyed the 2 x 8 mins more than the 3 x 5 mins on Sunday.

So chuffed. I 'think' we may be ok on Friday with the 20 minutes hurdle.

Calves hurt a bit but I had to run on concrete in my wellies yesterday when of my Labradors yesterday went walkabout...little sod. All good apart from that.

The slowing down definitely worked as I knew it would. Thanks all for making me :))

Only gone and got past the half way point...YESSSSSS !!!!!

Aha, listen to us all and you will succeed! Well done you.

You're in a great place to go all the way now. Continue to take it steady, avoid the temptation to get carried away and you'll avoid injury and go all the way.

Good luck for Friday.

Take care

:-) xx
