Don't give up!

Just come back from my first run of week 7, and I know that I will be graduating in 8 more runs!!!! Despite the wind and rain I had a great run on a new route.

I usually do 50% off road, but didn't fancy heavy muddy feet so went on the roads. Ended my 25mins up a massive hill and got 3/4 of the way up it!! SOOO pleased with myself and now have the final 1/4 of the hill as a goal for my future runs.

I am not the classic running build (I carry a lot up front), but have really enjoyed this program. For all of you folk unsure or struggling to complete a run-please just keep trying, eventually you will smash it and you'll feel so proud of yourself when you do.

Anyone concerned about their red faces-I just ran in a bright red rain mac-makes you glow even more, but saves on a fluorescent jacket!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ…

  • Well done Hannah_S36 sounds like you are really enjoying those longer runs.

    I must admit that whilst I liked all stages of the program so far (Currently on IC, b4 taking on W9) W7 was when everything really clicked for me.

  • Well done! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸƒβ€β™€οΈβœ”οΈ

    Just keep going nice and steady. Running in less than ideal conditions is all good practice. It was warm out there yesterday wasn't it 😊 We had our own personal saunas πŸ˜ƒ My biggest problem wa sleeping my hood up πŸ™„

  • Great post - love the idea of a red raining mac! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • I'll take a photo next time-it's a vision!

  • Great! I look forward to seeing the "lot you carry up front" ;-)

  • Oops! Did I say that out loud?
