Wk3r1 Done ✅

Well I lay in bed and debated with myself about this one. Aching legs needed a 2 day rest, I found 90 seconds hard so not ready for 3 mins etc. Then I decided to do it and if I fell flat on my face or puked then I would do week 2 again.

Well I did it and I didn't fall/ collapse/die. It was not easy but it was not as terrible as my mind had told me it would be.

Wish I had an off switch for those negative thoughts. Feel great now, if I can do it once, I can surely do it twice more.

  • Of course you can! It literally is a case of mind over matter. You CAN do it 😊

  • No can about it - I think you just did it

  • Yes..just keep it slow and steady....🙂

  • yes you can do it , tell the mind gremlin to move along and you focus on keep putting one foot in front of t'other xx :D

  • Well done ! I ran this today too and am beginning to realise that I need to work on my mindset. I really didn't think I could do this today but had a go and completed my best "run" yet. Will be looking to see how you get on with W3R2

  • Well if I know you will be looking out for me, I will have to crack on with it or have a real good reason not to. Thanks for the encouragement xx
