Week 5 completed! ๐Ÿ˜

Enjoyed run 3 in the sunshine ....without music or sound (my choice) from Jo W but not quite as much as run 2 (also on silent - not my choice), which went overtime so possibly a tad tired and disconcertingly, a scrambling squirrel almost fell from a branch on to my head (no joke) .

It took until the final 8/20 minutes to feel my breathing was comfortable which surprised me, I expected it to the other way around! Any knowledge shared on this would be appreciated? I went out nervous today but feel I've achieved! And having been stressed at work last two days this was a good stress buster too. Win/win today ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

  • Well done! And blimey, falling squirrels?! Is there no limit to the perils we face? :)

    Not sure about the breathing but I am sure someone can advise.

  • Well done, love the squrriel bit ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€ my breathing always gets better later on to, and almost every run I'm nervous at the beginning, I think its because of that reason that breathing is harder, but as you get into a steady pace and relax into the run your breathing relaxes too, if that makes sense, I'm not an expert but this is what happens to me ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

  • It was funny if a bit alarming๐Ÿฟ and yes that does make sense !

    Thanks.... takes a while to get into good pace too I think ๐Ÿ˜„

  • Slow and steady does it... and I am not surprised the breathing went awry with the squirrel dropping on your head!!!

    The whole breathing thing is weird...best thing is, just do it, like you do all the time... If it is laboured..then slow down some more:)

    As the runs lengthen you have time to find your happy pace... just take it gently :)
