W1R2 😊

Thank you everyone on all the advice you passed on to me after my first run. I have taken it all onboard, I did my 2nd run of week 1 today, it was amazing. What a difference by going sloooooowe 🐒, enjoying the surroundings and letting Sara Milican guide me. I thought after having a day off it would be like starting from scratch, but it wasn't. I'm now excited to run on sunday. Cheers everyone 🍻πŸ₯‚❀️

Thank you, I've tried running before but gave up, I didn't enjoy it. This time with support from the forum it feels different, the tips have been great πŸ˜ƒ

Well done - I made the mistake for the first three weeks of setting off too fast - slow and steady finally got onto my head though! EnjoyπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒ

I too have just completed run 2 wk 1...but found it much harder than the first one. It doesn't help that I feel really self conscious doing it.

Hi Dizzic I had lots of advice off people on the forum which really helped me. I'm also making sure that I have my day off in between. I looked like a red tomato πŸ… But was told to wear this like a badge of honor. Check out some of the advice on some of the posts here, it really does work 😊 Good luck πŸ€

Wk1R3 now completed and it felt easier than run2...despite having a 3 course roast Sunday roast only a few hours earlier! Took my 11y old with me and that made me feel much better, as he also struggled with the 60s runs. :)

Gonna try starting wk2 Tuesday, lunchtime (as day off work) or early evening...started wk1 on Wed so no sure yet whether to keep up the alternation or stick to set days.
