w4r2 complete on a beautiful sunny morning

Glorious sunny morning for a run round the fields near Sutton Courtenay. Wish I could have stopped to take a picture of the poppies next to the wheatfield against the sunlight, which made up for the disused cooling towers of Didcot Power Station on the other side! It will remain a great memory! Maybe next time I should take a go-pro!

Wonder if I'll be so keen to run if it's piddling with rain?

Also: just checked on Strava - improved distance covered over w4r1 - 3.5 -> 3.8 km. I know it's pretty slow by most standards but definitely an improvement!

  • Well done 👍 keep going - it's such a good program I'm a week behind you and can't believe I've managed 3 mins!

  • strangely enough i have week 4 run 2 to do tonight good work keep it up ... and yes running in the rain is not a pleasant thought but is a very refreshing experience :D

  • I imagine it's much like cycling in the rain. Initially you think yuk, but once you're soaked through you don't care anymore! Drying out the sodden trainers isn't so appealing though!

  • nope drying out soggy trainers is never a nice thing thankfully only drizzle so far this year to contend with but winter is coming (lol) and memories of running in lashing rain isn't appealing

  • Sounds like a great run and in a good place too :)

    Rain.. it can be refreshing... and once you're wet, well, you're wet.. That is how my husband used to encourage me to head out in the winter of 2015, when I graduated..( usually this was offered from the comfort of a warm bed )!!! He was right :)

    Do not be thinking at all, of speed or distance at this point.. slow and steady does it...the whole C25K programme is about a slow, steady, structured build up... many have ignored it and have ended up on the IC, or fallen by the wayside:( There is a way to go yet :)

  • Great stuff Iain 😊...
