Wk 6 : R 1 Totally surprised!! 😊

Well lovelies πŸ€“

Either it's my very young age, (49), or I am completely losing it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

It's only dawned on me right now, when i was about to create this post, that I thought, which wk am I on? This also dawned on me when I commenced my run tonight and 3 minutes through wk 5, run 1, I thought, haven't I done Wk 5 in total?

So, I stopped the podcast and thought I must have done Wk 5. So I started on wk 6 : R 1. πŸ€”

I completed run 1 and although tiring, I felt quite chuffed. I am still unsure whether I've done wk 5, run 2 and 3 as I have not uploaded them.

If this is the case, will it matter that I've jumped 2 runs of week 5? I honestly can't recall. My 2nd run this week should have been Wednesday, but I was unable to do that run.

My guessing is that I've have skipped the 2nd and 3rd run of wk 5.

Wk 6 : R 1 was challenging, but surprisingly, I seemed to have coped well. This isn't me showing off as I wouldn't be like that, me, the one who couldn't run for half a minute, let alone for 1 minute.

Will I have done any damage to future wks?

So chuffed I've done it either way. 8 minutes seemed to drag, then it sped up.

Sorry for the big image, haha, not a good sight for a Friday night, haha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Thanks lovelies anyway 😊

Ah you missed 2. Sorry to tell you and also there's a good reason for doing them too. W5 is a mixing it up week. You may find yourself in trouble trying to continue with W6. I don't want to rain on your parade as the song goes, but would hate you to get injured. Nonetheless it's a cracking effort and you should be proud.

Ah, thanks both Martin and Jan. I'm sure you'll look grand Martin on wk 6 😊😊

Jancanrun - probably best I go back to run 2 of wk 5 then? If it's advised and recommended, then I will do what's best for me 😊 I was thinking about it too all the way through that it didn't seem right, haha.

Glad you've advised, I appreciate everyone's thoughts, don't be afraid to say πŸ‘ x

It's worth doing Week 5 I reckon. It gives most people a nice surprise on run 3. πŸ˜‰

You silly sausage...😊 Just click on your name and all your posts are listed. Your last post was three days ago and you did Wk5 R1...

Methinks you should do Week 5 as it's a big important one...😊πŸ’ͺπŸƒ

Great pikkie.... :) You did well :)

Maybe check the missed runs out.....and just do them?

My feeling is, it will be good to have done them, not least of all because Week 5 is a , shake it up, week, before Week 6?

You are doing amazingly...:) You look great too!

Aww, thank you all so far, your encouragement means a lot 😊 I'm not really familiar with my profile or notification settings on here just yet, but I had a nose around yesterday and catching up with it all, lol.

I's it unusual then that I felt I coped okay with wk 6 : R 1, having missed the last 2 runs of wk 5? πŸ€”

Either way, I'll do run 2 of wk 5 tomorrow and catch up. I had no intentions of missing them, or there's no point. Thanks all again, getting there slowly 😊

I agree with all my friends...

- forgetting which run you're doing: Muppet

- completing W6r1: Awesome

- photo: you look a bit damp, but great picture

- next run: do W5r2. Then you'll have a pleasant surprise when you get to W5r3.
