Walking home with swagger! W6r1

Just did week 6, day 1 and pre-warned by others that it might be a challenge. Paced myself and found running easier than the recovery walks because it was slowing down that causes my leg cramp and starting to think "I can do this!" Not saying I could run at speed or complete a 5K course but able to manage a bit of pain, thinking more positively and continuing to breathe well.

Walking home, could have felt like smiling like a Cheshire Cat, this is the best run for me so far, if I can, you can for sure!


PS. Maybe I am becoming a runner (or it could be my new running shoes - only cost me ยฃ29 from Sports Direct)!

  • Yeah I found week 6 run 1 was better than expected - wait till you get to run 3 lol it was difficult but not impossible ๐Ÿ˜œ

  • 20 minutes was just possible so 25 should b ok. The pains in my legs come and then go. I have a reasonably slow pace and good breathing, so I will rest between run days but feeling good about week 6, once you can do 25, so close to the 30 minutes, what else could phase us now?? ๐Ÿ˜€


  • Woo hoop! Go you! Brilliant news J- congrats and hugs ๐Ÿ˜€ x

  • Well done! That's the spirit. New shoes always put a spring in your step

    Take care now, go steady!

  • They did. I said to my husband who bought them for me that either I am turning into an athlete or I have magic shoes! I think the running socks were great too, felt so padded and the shoes were light. They weren't expensive either but make the world of difference! Now I am poor and not working, appreciating small things in life. So blessed to be able to run at 51 when so many people are limping about with aches and pains
