Monday misery W9R1 done 😣

Instead of my usual 2 days off decided to start W9 this morning. BIG mistake! Blimey, I felt sick after about 20 minutes - my own daft fault for not timing my pre-run snack properly. Then I realised I was going a bit faster than usual, my brain telling me that the 30 minutes would be up quicker, no doubt. Anyway, pig-headedness kept me going and for the first time in my life I ran for 30 minutes!!! If I can do it once surely I can do it again. I really want that badge! What I have learned today: dig in and don't give up; I'm obviously not a Monday morning runner! 😊

  • Well done on sticking with it 👍 I bet your Monday morning didn't suck quite as much once your had obliterated W9R1! Looking forward to seeing your shiny Graduate badge in a few days. Good luck 🍀

  • Wahooo you got out there and even though it was a pig you did it~!!! And you'll do it again....I know that 30 minute feeling :)

  • Well done, you did it. Only 2 more runs to go and you know now that you CAN do it.

    Good luck and enjoy.

  • You're so close now, tryinmibest. Well done on getting through this morning's slog.

    Final 2 runs: slow & steady, rest is best, you know the drill. :)

  • You finished, that's the main thing. Onwards!
