Wk 6, run 1... Thanks for the warning!

Have successfully completed this run....but goodness that was harder than it had any right to be! Thanks to Lee337 and to everyone who has posted about the pitfalls of this run. I don't understand why running a 5, 8,5 set of runs should be so hard, but I can confirm it definitely is!

I was willing Laura to tell me I'd got half way through the eight minute run so I could turn back round and head home...and then willing her to say I could stop running for the whole of the second four minutes!

At least I knew that others found it a real trickster, though, so I just slowed down, tried to keep calm and kept running. Knowing it was going to be hard and that was normal was a great help, so thank you all! And YAY I did it ! And nearly fell over the neighbours cat when I got home, but that's another story!

  • No worries on the heads-up Raven2016 :)

    I'm glad you got through it, as like you say, it's tough, but it has no reason to be tough! :o

    All the best with the rest of the week.

    (I take it no cats were harmed during the creation of that post!?) ;)

  • The cat was fine....but I could have done without the unexpected bid for affection as I opened the door! He's a lovely mog, as it happens, but a black cat on a dark night in an unlit porch is bit startling 🐾

  • Especially at this time of year, eh? lol

  • Well done that bloody week 6 , mad kinda suitable your doing it around Halloween , black cats and all

  • Well done.. you have overcome that tricky week.. and avoided cat injuries :)

    Slow and steady is the way as you go onward and upwards :)
