W6R1 in the bag

That felt so much harder than 20 minutes straight, although maybe the fact that it was tippingit down and I had to run through puddles that were like ponds didn't help.

I did a better distance than on Friday although it felt like I was going slower (obviously I wasn't).

The gremlins came out for the final 5 minutes but I managed to ignore them and push through.

  • Well done

  • Well done...its a clever plan...soon you won't want running breaks at all😄x

  • Right there with you, did it few hours ago, its wet here too and I didn't find it easier😐. O

    Honestly, your post could have been about me😜 Just one thing to add,

    On the odd occasion I have had a stitch it isn't whilst running but when I slow to walk. It happened again today, don't know if this is common but I figure, very soon it will be one big run and I won't have to bother with it anyway😀

    Keeep plodding on, see you out there Wednesday!

  • I got my first stitch today on the second walk, which I found strange but it was gone by the time I had to start running again so all was good.

    I shall definitely see you out there on Wednesday, have a good one.

  • Well done 👍

  • Nice one. Perhaps it wasn't the rain or the puddles, I also found it hard going and I managed to get out before the heavens opened this morning. Sarah Millican said that this run was designed to 'consolidate your running'. What does that even mean?😕

    Ah who cares, we did it!

  • A very valid point, we did it and we shall do R2 on wednesday
