Missing in Action

....well not missing in action....more not been out....there I have said it out loud...to be fair I did have a blister the size of Texas followed by a pretty severe case of man flu for a week or so...still bloody excuses though...I got to and completed W2R1 before 'break' and tonight got my shoes back on and got out there....now I just need to know do I have to start all over again from W1R1 or, as i did tonight start W2R1. I don't want to 'graduate' under false pretenses. Hard tonight but got it done. Well done to all of you on whatever week you're in for sticking to it 🙂

Well done for getting back out there👍 That really can be the hardest part. If you managed today ok I'd move on to the next one, I'm no expert though🙄

Good luck 😀👍😀

Thankyou👍 I'd say I'm doing .....so so🙄 W4r3 was supposed to be today but my legs are sooooo heavy I've decided to have an extra rest day😉 Like all the good people on here say... It's not a race🙂 Extra rest days seem to be my theme at the moment😊 Slow and steady is my mantra👍

If week 2 is do-able for you, then absolutely start there, no false pretences involved! :) Glad it went well tonight - you'll get back to it now :)

Helllllooooo theshrinkingbride 🙂 how the devil are you...Yes I am returned and pounding the streets like a seasoned pro....W2R2 tomorrow and I cannot wait....to feel like I'm going to have a heart attack with every step, trying to work out how to breathe (been doing that for 46 years without a problem...go for a run and it all goes out the window 🙂) my legs not seeming to move when I lift my knees and tears streaming down my cheeks at the end while I curl up in a featal position LOL...hope all going well with you and your running 🙂

I hit the wall monday on W6R3 and spent the rest of the day feeling sorry for myself and disappointed but, hey-ho, just have to try again

I'd've counted last night as W2R2, never mind W2R1 again. If you complete a run, that's good enough!
