Week 7 runs 1&2 Fitter Faster Stronger

So just did W7R2. I nearly didn't.  Wasn't feeling great but it was such a beautiful evening so I went and it turned out to be a great run. W6r3 I struggled. It was my first after a couple of weeks off with a cold and w7r1 wasn't much better. I've taken my run off the roads and on to the trail to get more hill work in and it was tough but tonight it all came together and I  loved every minute. ..I felt like I could have run much longer. And the views were stunning, lochs, sea, hills and forest. A lovely way to end the day. So glad I pushed myself to go.

That sounds idyllic. You're inspiring me to get myself out there this morning, although my surroundings aren't quite so magnificent!

Go for it. I really thought I was going to struggle and maybe even have to give up but once I got out there something just clicked and I was so glad I'd made the most of a beautiful day.

Well done for battling through! I'm glad you had such a lovely run. I'm just behind you - planning to do W7R1 today - and you have inspired me to go for it.

It's lovely when you come back from a run with a smile on your face. I'm not sure whether I run to keep myself fit or whether it's to lift my spirits; I guess one is a by-product of the other. Win-win either way.

It definitely helps lift your mood doesn't it. I had PND after having both my children and running really helped me feel better. Even now I find if I go through periods of not exercising my mood dips. I love the freedom and head space running gives...it's such a good way to feel better about yourself physically and mentally ☺
