Pure Joy


I am now up to Week4 Run 2. Have repeated weeks 2 & 3 twice and felt ready to progress to the next level each time. I was worried about Week 4 and the increase of running time, but am amazed that I don't feel to out of puff, just have trouble with achey legs. This morning at 6.00 the sun was shining down , birds singing as I completed my cool down walk in glorious countryside and felt a moment of pure joy. I am so glad I started this process and hope I continue to feel 'joy".

Wishing everyone a joyous day

  • Lovely. The moments of pure joy will keep coming as long as you keep running. You might even reach the point of having whole runs of joy!
