W7R3 Well, the next one has to be better!

What a miserable run that was! The weather was dire, windy and wet, and I've been battling a dodgy stomach for a few days now. Wasn't convinced I would complete today so set off rather slowly and kept it that way. The slowest 25 minute run of the four I've done!

BUT I'm absolutely delighted I made myself do it and incredibly impressed to have got to the end of week 7. It's done and I love the idea that I'm (hopefully) ready for week 8. Maybe the weather will be kinder come Wednesday ..... So, so close now ..... :)

Well done! I did that run today too, what a great feeling to have completed four 25 min runs. And yes mine today was slow too.

Brilliant. Well done you. Imagine how good completing three 28 minute runs will feel!

Well done 👍 , that is the sign of a proper runner 🏃 🏃‍♀️

chickened out and did my w7r2 on the treadmill but found it really hard compared to being outside(outside on a nice day).

I think I ran too fast with the pressure of the numbers telling me my speed, it felt like a hellish long time.

Got a reflective waterproof running jacket coming from Amazon, so next time it's wet, I will be out there with you. 🌨

No, you didn't chicken out - you completed it too! I had my nice new jacket on for the first time yesterday. Forecast suggests it will be getting plenty of wear!
