Couch to 5K

Hot hot hot W6R2 ✅

First things first, I faced my demons and went out for a run in pure daylight! That is itself is progress for me. 😀 The rain was drizzling so that is great conditions for keeping me cool during the run, or so I thought. As usual the first 5 mins were hard but I picked up during the second 5. I jogged through the streets trying to avoid builders and dustmen who have an annoying habit of shouting out! Another reason to run in the dark 😂 I did get very hot again in the 3 min interval walk but held on and powered through the final 10 minute run. I’m not giving up. I even improved my pace and distance now reaching 4.26km. Yes, I’m pleased with myself but ever so hot at the finish. W6R3 planned for Saturday 😱

P.S. I always run early morns, when there are so few people about!

TJMazz, that's brilliant, you can work your way through the podcast at your own pace. I know the feeling of being hit, my face is flushed within 5 minutes of running. Plus, I'm happier in a vest than any other top, even if it's colder. Let us know how you get on lovely x
