Week 7 Run 2

Really didn't want to go this morning. My legs have really ached as I've started to do the longer runs, but my brain was saying just go and try. Never thought I would say this but I miss my run if I can't go on the days I usually do. Anyway to cut a long story short I went and for about 5 minutes the run was hard and I felt stiff but took it slow and steady and finally managed the 25 minutes. So glad I went those gremlins must have been about this morning! X

  • Bloody gremlins! Just goes to show that facing them down is the way to go tho... well done.

  • Well done Sam, you showed them gremlins where to go!!!

  • Well done for beating the gremlins, Sammully. C25k definitely becomes a mental rather than physical challenge at some point. :)

  • Great gremlin beating!! I was due to do w7r2 on Monday but for the first time in this programme just could not make myself go out, but I am ready to go this eve :-)

  • Good luck with it x

  • Well done - once you get those shoes on you can take on anything!

  • I did my run 2 this morning, though aching from a fair bit of exercise this week! Found it hard but just kept moving - I'm not about to start stopping after all these weeks!!! Run 3 is on Saturday, good luck with yours! I've just downloaded run keeper and bought a Fitbit so I can track distance and speed now!

  • Good luck to you too. Feels like we've come so far now, nearly there don't want to stop now xx
