W6R3 get in!

It's in the bag, I felt myself starting to flag and then Jo had the audacity to interupt Bryan Adams (singing "run to you") to tell me I only had 5 minutes left, so I quickly forgave and thanked her for her cheek and doubled down on my efforts, then before I knew it, she was back interrupting Meatloaf (bat out of hell) to tell me I only had 60 seconds, was she sure? It didn't feel like 4 minutes had passed and when she said a final sprint would be good for the heart I thought, why not? Although I don't think what I did could be called a sprint I did up the pace a bit and I've got to say, it felt great, I didn't think the feeling I had after W5R3 could be beaten, but it was.

Week 7 I'm coming to get ya!

Thank you 😁.

And she did tell me I'm a runner now, I'm still not sure I believe her though.

I had to double check mapmyrun this morning to make sure I'd actually done it and wasn't dreaming

Well done you! It get more awesome as the weeks go on doesn't it? Just completed W7R1 (even after a rather drunken weekend of 2 parties and the inside of my thighs feeling stiff, not quite sure what occurred! 😱) Keep going, we CAN do it! 👍

I'm starting W7 tonight, I'm not a fan of evening runs but I'm not going to let that get in the way.

Like you I had a fairly heavy weekend, I'm trying to lose weight as well as get fit, that went out of the window but, as my mum used to say, a little of what you fancy does you good.

Well done on W7R1, I'll see you at the finish line 😊
