Week 7 time to start

After few of those women days that we hate, I recovered and although I probably have some common cold, I decided that I am sick of being on IC from different reasons and I went out.

Again, against all odds: sore throat, headache, battery in my wireless headphones died during the run (so I ended without Laura, as I decided to go with her today instead of Mr Robot), sore muscles (still a little stiff neck, and sore calves), some small pain in the knee (the healthy one) throughout most of the run, muddy and slippery path, having bad Monday, and probably several other that I already forgot about, I did go run, and I completed W7R1. At least I think so, as when my headphones died I needed to estimate time I was running and therefore how much I have left.

It was nice jog. I had a good, slow, steady pace, my breathing was most of the time calm-ish. Even sun gave me a little of extra vitamin D :) I needed it to calm my mind, refresh my brain, and believe in myself.

Mission accomplished :D

  • Blimey I'm in awe! This jogging game changes our way of thinking for sure. Well done you for getting out there, despite all that!

  • I admit getting out was very hard. I qas sitting in running clothes for about 20 min before I decided to go instead of undress. I tricked myself and I gear up before going out with my dog (first think I'm doing after work), just put additional layer on it :)

    It was not the best day of my life and I am exhausted, but at least I don't regret not going for a run :) At least I have this small accomplishment on my list today :)

  • I think it's a biiiiiig accomplishment - you did it in spite of everything, that speaks volumes. It's those moments when we almost don't but actually do - they feel like a near miss, but they turn out to be the foundation of our success. That's what I tell myself anyway!!! You should be well chuffed with yourself.

  • I was when I was running. I think it was the only moment during the day when I felt good and happy.

  • Well done ninja! Nice jog, time done and you didn't feel like it either. Great accomplishment

  • I don't allow myself to get lost in week 6 ;) time to move on and do some more long runs (meaning no walking breaks). I had an idea to graduate before my holidays (24/09), bit it will need to wait a little bit longer. Ninjas are built slowly and steadily, no rush in runs and no rush in graduation time.

    But hey, I bought myself a cap :D so no excusea during rains, maybe I will even be able to see :)

  • Well done you ! Feel better soon :)

  • Thanks :)
