If at first you don't succeed, try and try again.. wk7 run1 done πŸŽ‰

Yipee just finished week7 run1 on 3rd attempt πŸŽ‰

1st attempt was a disaster as I was very tired from lack of sleep- lesson learnt, not to run when feeling tired or under the weather.

2nd attempt was better, I managed 20 minutes before giving into the gremlins.

Today's 3rd attempt was much better. I told the gremlins to shut up and kept going. Slow and steady, I managed 4.07k in 25 minutes. Very pleased with myself for not giving up.

  • Yikes, what a great distance. Well done!

    You know the secret to defeating the voices that can stop us doing what ever we want ☺

    Keep going you are doing great ☺

  • I certainly do, I'm constantly repeating "I can do this" and it seems to work ;)


  • Well done Shireen !

    You dug deep and its paid off big time ! I think this is definitely a mental challenge as much as a physical one. The body will only go where the mind tells it to .

    Brilliant effort, yes , you can do this ! :-) xxx
