W2 R3

W2 R3

W2 R3 finished this evening, I felt so good I ran for 2 minutes instead 0f 90 seconds at the end of each half. I have just looked at week 3, and it seems

fine. I only look at the next week when I am ready to start it, I see no point in frightening myself untill my body is ready for it.

I took this photo yesterday evening, but he was there again today to watch me.

Wow, that's a stunning picture.

And well done on your very commonsense approach to the weeks. You will be ready fro each successive week at the end of the previous, as you say.

Well done Patrick on completing w2, it sounds like you've enjoyed it that's great. That is a special picture, one worthy of Countryfile calendar. I hope he spurred you on. 😊 Keep up the good work.

Just look at the eyes on that fellow, wow! Love that photo. You're doing great. I didn't look ahead either, just took it 1 run at a time.

The Short Eared Owl is unlike other owls as it hunts in daylight .

Hi Patrick, That photo is amazing. Well done on completing Week 2. I just started week 2 today, and I struggled a bit and my legs are aching a bit. I wasn't as motivated today, as last week. Did all your runs in week two go as well as Run 3? I hope I feel better on Thursday.

Great Photo

Hi Barbara, I find day 1 of the week hardest, then progressively easier with 2 and 3, which prepares you to start the next week. It's a great plan and it works! Stay possitive and you will stay motivated. I hope your legs support you through this. (sorry for the pun)
