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 πŸ™‚

  • Well done for getting back out thereπŸ‘ That really can be the hardest part. If you managed today ok I'd move on to the next one, I'm no expert thoughπŸ™„

    Good luck πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ˜€

  • Thanks πŸ™‚ hope you're getting on well.

  • ThankyouπŸ‘ I'd say I'm doing .....so soπŸ™„ W4r3 was supposed to be today but my legs are sooooo heavy I've decided to have an extra rest dayπŸ˜‰ Like all the good people on here say... It's not a raceπŸ™‚ Extra rest days seem to be my theme at the moment😊 Slow and steady is my mantraπŸ‘

  • 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 :)

  • RainbowC I'm taking that as red πŸ™‚... thank you. W2R2 tomorrow it is then.. Hope your running is going well.

  • I wondered where you were. *le hug* welcome back

  • Helllllooooo theshrinkingbride πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚) 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 πŸ™‚

  • 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

  • W6...that seems ages away and actually that makes you in my book a bloody legend so good on you for getting there... You'll be fine.... So close... you'll smash this ☺

  • And you can do it too (I won't scare you with what's in the coming weeks)

  • I am scared by you saying that 😱just re-doing W2R1 again n the 90 second run had me crying for my Mum ☺hope your doing good

  • I'm doing fine. Last day of week 7 tomorrow (Tuesday) then I move onto week 8, I'm so close to graduation I can all but taste it - I'm also gearing up for a 5k run in aid of Welsh Children's Hospice

  • Bloody brilliant πŸ˜€ what a great thing to do.... You'll be an expert by the time the 5k comes along....you Go girl πŸ™‚

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

  • Bloody right GoogleMe...now that is my kinda answer πŸ™‚ hope all going well with you and your running

  • Yes I agree if you've completed the runs , go on to the next , but if you've repeated one , theres no harm done :-)

    Hope youre back to feeling full strength very soon xxx

  • Thank you sooooooo much poppypug...what a lovely reply πŸ™‚ out again tomorrow to see if my legs can support my big ole bulk on W2R2... It was blinkin hard the other night...hope you are doing well and running is going good πŸ™‚

  • Yes I'm doing fine thanks xxx

  • Will do... Loving the encouragement... Thanks πŸ™‚
