"There should be confetti cannons"

"There should be confetti cannons"

So said Jo Whiley as I completed W9R1. I don't mind, "snow confetti" will do for me (just visible in my snapshot). Taking the advice on here, I consciously slowed down and miraculously found I could run for 30 minutes without getting out of breath or feeling like I had to take a breather :))) I could have kept going but deferred to those who designed this programme and didn't push it.

  • Well done! What a great feeling, knowing you could have gone on😀 Lots of time for that post grad - which is now VERY close.

    BTW you'll need to change your name...😉

  • Well done!! That's awesome

  • Run 2 was a bit tougher. My left calf was a little sore from the start but it's a beautiful day and I'm determined to graduate this week. I kept plodding away, favouring my calf as much as possible (which of course meant other muscles working harder). It's the first time I've used one of Laura's podcasts and also the last - I found the tempo of the music too fast and I swear her timing of the last 10 minutes was way off! Anyway, I got to the end and feel fine now - we'll see what my leg is like tomorrow and then decide whether to have a couple of days break before.... RUN 3!!!!!
