Wk 6 : R 1 Totally surprised!! 😊

β€’22 Replies

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 😊

Well done and great pic, hope I look that good when I'm on week 6. 😁

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


Great pic, you look amazing!

Aww, thanks SteffieLouG 😊


Whatever you have done tonight...I'm in awe, you are just fantabulous!!!! X

in reply to Mummycav

Aww, bless you Mummycave109 x


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

in reply to Gillma

Thanks Gillma..... 😊I will continue with it then, I did wk 5, run 1 on Monday, so I will start run 2 😊

in reply to quirkybee

I'm moving on to W5 on Sunday...dreading it in my mind but my trainers are ready to go!!!!! X


Haha, You will be great, I'm sure of it. Let me know how you get on x πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

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

in reply to Bluebirdrunner

At least I'm keen, lol πŸ˜‚

Thanks Jan πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

Agree with Jan πŸ‘


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!

in reply to Oldfloss

Thank you Oldfloss, means a lot 😊

Yay! Well done, we back at the same level again! I still haven't done week 6 run 3 but hoping to get out there and nail it!!!

Well done again and we really are getting close now!!


in reply to Lstace

Thanks Lstace, yay we can do this.....hope you get chance over the weekend x πŸ‘


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 😊

in reply to quirkybee

Hmmm Wait and see Week 5 is surprising😊 in a good way.x


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.

in reply to MarkyD

I'm intrigued now, haha.

Thanks MarkyD 😊 πŸ‘
