Boom!! Early morning solid run!! Yes it hurt a bit but the previous weeks have meant i was ready. As the minutes ticked by I expected to have to take a break but i just kept running. Slow and steady..

Was i plum coloured and sweaty? Of course i was!!(but smiling at the same time)

The sense of achievement is soothing at the end for sure. Looking forward to slowly moving through the last few runs and getting involved in the parkruns in just a few weeks. Thanks again to everyone on here. I feel as though you have got me here, changed my mindset and instilled a new habit that i am absolutely enjoying.

Happy running all!

  • Sounds as though you've got the mind set now and are enjoying the runs and like myself looking forward to your new life

  • Totally am... although i have managed to skip a rainy run day so far!!! Looks like that is about to change tho. (Still at least it will hide the sweat pouring off me). Oh Joy

  • Have run a couple of times in the rain so far and it's not so bad, once your wet your wet and to be honest I think it's preferable to running in heat
