Did it mummycav and sillyyak!!!!

Whoopee...wk6 run 2 sorted. The three musketeers all conquered this one today!! I was last so no pressure!!! Tough again, made the mistake of wearing 3 inch heels at work all day so feet really hurt when I got to running!! Still worried am going too slow but don't think would be able to sustain a faster pace just yet. Although don't get out of breath, is that wrong?? Just feels comfortable for me so must be what I need for now.

Hell, 3" heels? 😱 my hero. I fall over in trainers. Lol

I was panting n sweating at the end and thought the last 60 second would never end, did my best time today though. Are you joining us on a parkrun this Saturday? 😂😂😂

I don't think so...might do one soon if my daughter is up for it. The last minute I resorted to playing word games...in my suitcase I packed...and made them as obscure as possible!!!! 🤣🤣🤣

Keep the pace you are running at for the moment as you are working within your capabilities and still completing the runs speed will come in time just keep plodding along and you will get there.

3 inch heels respect, I cried when I finally gave up my 4 inches, now as I shrink so to do the heels. 2.5 all I can manage now. So you tottered around on your tachi as they are called here, all day and then ran. Double respect. Well done P

My goodness quite a gang of you racing to get on the podium and great support for one another and you're all doing so well and seem to well and truly have shaken the gremlins off, funny how that seems to happen after the dreaded week 5 is in the bag
