W1D2 done, yay!

Feeling really happy with that run. My heart is still pumping fast but I've done my cool down and remembered this time to do a few static stretches afterwards so hopefully I won't feel so sore tomorrow.

It took a proper kick up the bottom to get me going, but this time I downloaded the app onto my phone and had Sarah Millican's voice to encourage me so that was nice. It also syncs up with my playlist so I downloaded some tunes to get me going.

My asthma is playing up today so just going to rest up and keep my inhaler on me. Just glad I have done it, just need to kick myself into gear Saturday morning!

If your heart is pumping fast post run then slow down. Slow, slower is fine for C25k. Preferable in fact 🏃‍♀️🙂

Hey misswobble, I will certainly do that on Sat! Thanks :)

well done, good plan on the inhaler - take it on runs. I am an asthmatic too and a trip to the nurse is always a good idea just to discuss your management with the running etc :)

I ran W1R2 today aswell, not to bad.

Here's to Saturday and the next run!

Sarah Millican? I listened to Lovely Laura when I did c25k a year ago. Well done for getting started! Best decision of my life! Or one of them.

I think I have a different app, it has an option to have some famous people instructing instead of Laura. It works pretty well for me because Sarah has a lovely accent from South Shields and she makes me smile (I probably look a bit crackers smiling whilst I run)!
