Week 6 run 3

Week 6 run 3

This morning was misty and cool - a rarity in August here where it is usually firmly in the dog days of summer. A little mist wasn't going to keep me from finishing week 6. I laced up my shoes and went out. I ean my usual route and you know what? I just ran 25 minutes straight. In that time I ran 2.65 km and if you count the warm up/cool down walks, I did 3.59 km in 35 minutes. I'll take that for now. I'll worry about speed later. Week 6 done and dusted. I am apparently now a runner πŸ˜ƒ.

  • Woohoo you! Brilliant- well done ! Week 7, that's just the same again isn't it? Go get em πŸ˜€

  • I intend to πŸ˜‰. Thank you! I am relaxed and happy!

  • That is a good distance and well done for doing 25 minute non stop running. We r neck and neck, I did mine on Friday, one to week 7 for us now - home run but with three non stop 25 minute runs, it will be a challenge but nothing we can't handle!!

  • Yep! We can do it!!!! Just think: the other increases in running time are 3 minutes and 2 minutes. What's 2 or 3 minutes more? - You know I'm right. Now think about how horrified you would have been a few weeks ago if someone had tacked 2 or 3 minutes to your run. We have come a long way!

  • I know, I was struggling to run for 3 minutes a few weeks ago. Now I feel my pace has picked up comfortably and once I finish C25K, plan to edge towards running 5K myself, once I can do it in about 45 minutes, will enter Parkrun.

    Love running cross country so going to explore some different places and maybe wooded tracks, canal paths - I was a couch potato but now everyday a lazy day isn't a good day

    Bring on week 7, slow and steady will get us to week 9!


  • Yep. I broke up with my couch. ;)

  • well done :D

  • Thank you Rob!

  • Woooohoooo! onwards and forwards... graduation is in sight! I envy you that mist. It was too hot for me to run by the time I got my lycra-clad butt into gear this morning. Harrumpf.

  • Oh I've been there. I also prefer the mist. It will get hot again here soon, but this was lovely. Thank you.

  • We become friends with the weather. We become friends with the leaden sky, and the blue sky, and the wind that lives in it. We become maybe less good friends with the Sun than we used to be, but often some warmth makes for part of a good run.

    We even become friends with hills! We start to salivate, and run about wanting to bite people. We go quite mad, in fact. But it's worth it.

    Oh I nearly forgot: Well done.

  • I love this! Running about wanting to bite people? Yes, I can definitely see that. Thank you!
