This morning I learnt a few new things about this running lark:

1-It’s getting cold in the early mornings so I will need to invest in some running gloves and base layers

2-The sunrises are absolutely stunning πŸŒ…πŸŒ…

3-Joy Division’s, Love Will Tear Us Apart, is my perfect running tune 🎢

4-After taking Mr Smooth out for a run today, I realised that I’ve missed him soooo much 😒 so he’ll be joining me regularly

5-The longer distance didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would

6-I STILL LOVE RUNNING β€οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

To all the new runners, the middle runners and the near the end runners, keep the faith, trust the program, never forget to enjoy your runs, make time for yourself and above all, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, YOU GOT THIS!!

Happy running you lovely lot πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸƒπŸΌ

Having said that 1km in and I was stripping layers off

This is LOVELY, Kimchoc! And you have reminded me, need to get running gloves! (Though has been very mild in London, to the point where I ran in shorts and a vest one day this week!)

Also, now I have graduated (yay!) I must try Mr Smooth on one of my runs. I was very loyal to Jo throughout C2SK, but my curiosity about the ole smoothy has now gotten the better of me!

Happy running, dear runner.

Thank you. Weather has been so mild that I’ve been in shorts and vest tops too!! You need to try Mr Smooth just once and you’ll be all gooey!! 😊😊

Thanks for the inspiration. I have learnt after week 1 that I need more than one pair of running socks! I do love how they label them L and R for the appropriate feet.

Great song and the beat fits perfectly to my running!! I sing it out loud when I’m running and I don’t care who hears me!!
