Felt sick 😔

Just completed second run of week 7 and I have to say I did not find this one hard I wanted to give up at one point but preserved when I heard you have done 12.5 minutes I nearly cheered but at 20 minutes I started to feel quite sick I almost stopped but Jo’s voice suddenly came on at the right time saying I only had 5 minutes left so I struggled on. I am thinking I will take an extra day rest in between and not run again until Wednesday I don’t want to feel like that again 😞

  • Well done for completing the run.. take that extra rest day and when you head out again... take it slower. Relax into the longer runs and just let those newly-found running legs, find a happy pace:)

  • Extra rest days are fine, absolutely fine...you showed determination by pushing on through when you could’ve easily stopped...& that’s spot on! Hope you recovered quickly 👍🏼

  • Yes I did thank you . I’m not a quitter but came close haha. It has not put me off it’s just made me more determined 😊

  • 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

  • Well done for completing the run. When I got to Week 7, I took 2 days rest between each runs but I did low impact exercises on these days which really helped.

  • Yes so do I , I joined a gym recently so do strength work on the other days my legs were a bit sore this morning at work so maybe I shouldn’t have gone todayas they are now aching . I always run after work as I work 5am-1pm and I find mid afternoon the best time with less people .

  • Well done for persevering. Amazing 👏🏼
