Week 6 Run 3 Complete!

After telling the gremlins to shut up all night, I went for the run and even though I felt like death by the end (so awful that im surprised no one called an ambulance when they saw me stagger up the street 😂) I DID IT. I was too tired to cheer but when Michael johnson said I'm a real runner now I had a huge smile on my face :)

Nearly there now. Soon ill graduate :D

3 30min runs. Always a bit daunting upping the distance but getting used to the longer runs now. Probably Fri when I do it as work busy. BTW week 7 a good week as you start it knowing you managed to run it end of wk 6.

Sheesh I thought I'd only have to run for thirty minutes once 😂

Soon you'll know you can complete thirty minutes so well done :)

Oh how I love to hear Michael Johnson's voice tell me I can slow down and walk! I actually laugh when he says 'Keep going you're doing great' because I think in my head 'you wouldn't day that if you could see me' lol

Haha ive thought that exact thing 😂 and "what does he know? Hes an actual runner, he wouldn't be here dying". It makes me wonder if I should use a different trainer who I could imagine struggling along side me lol. But I like michael Johnson's voice spurring me on so ill forgive him 😂😂

I did w6r3 last night too - well done.

I made the mistake of changing my route and my first 2k were all uphill, I honestly felt that people were going to walk past me but I did it

Wow well done. I can barely run on flat ground 😂

Good going. This will be me tomorrow morning I hope, so it's good to know others are conquering their gremlins at the same point.

Onwards to graduation!
