Decent Start

My wife and I completed run 2 of week one last night and although we're just starting off, there was a big improvement on run 1, we covered a lot more distance. We run along the canal in Chesterfield so when we finish we have a long walk back which we do quite briskly so all in all we're doing very well.

I just hope and prey we both remain injury free, fingers crossed.

Looking forward to Friday and getting past week one.

Onwards and upwards!

  • I run with my husband too. It's good to have company, especially if it gets a bit tough. Enjoy!!

  • Morning Quaker, well done on joining the programme and your run! One thing i realised was that if you turn round halfway through the podcast you will be close to home when you finish. Stick with it. Good luck and happy running

  • We actually do the extra on purpose to get our Fitbit 10,000 in. its actually quite a pleasant walk back.

  • Brilliant! As you progress the runs you will definitely get those in! πŸ˜€

  • I also run with my hubby, it's nice to have company and he won't let me quit me I am flaky! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  • Ey up! We probably passed each other as I was running the canal last night πŸ˜€ it was dead busy wasn't it 😊 I nearly got as far as Nona's before heading back. It was a bit hot wasn't it

    Don't bother about distance covered. It's not about that. It is just about finishing ☺

    Good luck and enjoy yourselves ☺

  • We are doing ok at the moment but its early days. The canal is ideal for us as its on our doorstep. If you see us, don't push me in! :-)

  • It's lovely isn't it. I use the new station link to get there now. I think it opens officially tomorrow ☺

  • brilliant, and is so good that you are doing it together as you can support each other along the way :)
