W1R3 - Afternoon run

Not as enjoyable as having a run in the morning but the autumn sun in Crewe Queens Park was fabulous. As for the run, walking seemed a little brisker and the runs were good. Still covering the same distance and breathing hard. Starting to look forward to Saturdays outing. Seems I might just be getting my run-junkies head on. Good luck to you all.

  • From one run junkie to another - well done. It's fine and hard work isn't it😬

  • Ull get there im ready to start w7 and only 7 weeks since struggled with running 1 min , now I'm managing 25 πŸ˜€ god knows where it comes from but it has. Good luck πŸ˜‰

  • You nailed what I reckon is the hardest part, overcoming the mental challenge of just getting out there. Well done you! Another important thing mentally is to look forward to your runs, rather than dread them. Positive thinking! I reckon it took me until week 3 to get that one down, but I still have my moments.

    Trust me, you're doing brill! Do let us know how you're getting on.

  • Wow, a run junky head on your third run. That is fan-bloomin-tastic. It took me a lot longer before I got hooked. In fact I think I only got seriously hooked once I started running outside - I found it really hard to see the treadmill as anything other than a necessary chore.

    Hope you're looking forward to week 2. πŸ€“

  • Great to see you are loving it. That is 90% of the battle.

    If you are breathing hard then slow it right down and take it nice and slow and steady. Replace the thought of 'running' with 'slow steady jogging'. Unfortunately 'This app will take you from couch to slowly shuffling along for 30 minutes in 9 weeks' didnt quite have the same punchy dynamic pezazz to it so they unfortunately used the word run.

    Nice and slow will see you through the 9 weeks.

    Keep us informed how you are getting on with your 'fix'

    Enjoy the journey.

  • Go you.. slow and steady does it and you are doing just fine:)
