Week 7 Run 3, best run so far!

After dragging myself out of bed I got to the park at 7am ready for the final run in week 7. It's taken me longer than I had planned to finish this week due to tiredness and giving into gremlins πŸ‘Ή So I made sure I was feeling happy and ready to go.

I usually struggle the first half but found today's run better in terms of pace, breathing and my own head space. My fitness has improved so much, I'm totally amazed.

So when I got to 20 minutes I decided to keep running past 25minutes, if I could...26 minutes in and a large black dog came running after me, running round my ankles and I ended up stopping. Felt a bit annoyed about that but then remembered id just finished week 7! Joy πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ so I did 4.2K today in 26 minutes. Not bad for someone who could let run to catch the bus a few weeks ago!!

I'm doing my first 5k run on Sunday, it'll be my 2nd run in week 8 so should almost run the whole way. Wow πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ

  • You are doing well, but would watch your speed, injuries can occur in the programme by going too fast too soon..😊

  • Thank you, I will, I definitely didn't feel like I was going too fast. More a fast walk but seems I walk faster than I thought! ;)

  • It's always great when a run is enjoyable :)

  • It was a first for me :) I always feel great afterwards but not really during. Long may it last.

  • Well done - I bet you end up running the whole 5k in the excitement of the race!

  • That would be amazing. Ill keep you posted 😊

  • Well done, glad this one was good for you and you conquered it with flying colours.

    Good luck with the run on Sunday!

    Off out later, when it's cooler, for W8 R1, I'm hoping there's a marked improvement on my W7. 😊
