Week 3 run 1 in the bag...somehow!!!

Just returned from run 1 of week 3...hard work but managed it which i am very happy about 😊 i dont think i have ever felt more cheated when my music went quiet during that first 3 minute run...MJ pipes up & i am under the impression that he is about to tell me that my 3 minutes is up...but no...i really want to stop & he is telling me i am HALFWAY!!!HALFWAY!!!😣 Any one else feel like that?

  • Haha Yes I remember it well! It will get easier and in a few weeks you will be looking back on this week from the graduates' podium :)

  • That would be amazing 😊

  • Haha, yes, last week when I was doing week 3. With him as well. But he’s such a cool dude that I forgive him.

  • I think i might be able to πŸ˜‰

  • As the runs get longer you have to adjust to the first in run comment being encouragement and not telling you to stop. A most disappointing development at first. Thankfully you'll be ready for it next time.

    Anyway, well done on getting run 1 done, it's amazing how quickly you adjust to the increases in run time.

  • Thankyou very much 😊

  • Yup, please forgive Mr Smooth, he’s doing it for your benefit.... wait for him to suggest you may like to go faster.. that’s when I started swearing at him!

  • I swore at him today when he said I was doing really well as I puffed uphill slower than I would have on a zimmer frame.

  • Yes most of my replies were unprintable ...

  • Haha πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  • Haha πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ i can imagine some choice words will be coming out of my mouth in the later stages πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

  • Haha πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ i dont blame you!!!

  • Very well done.. slow and steady, onwards!!!

  • Its very slow!!!

  • Perfect!

  • I’m in week 5 and Sarah Millican tells me I’m only 1/2 way through a run. St that moment I’m really disappointed but I forgive her at the end because she’s called me flower and pet!

  • I wish Michael Johnson would call me flower and pet....sigh....

  • Haha...i think he might sound a bit weird saying pet πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  • Can't you change the mentor without starting again - honestly I don't think I could do it without Sarah - she's like your kind mate

  • Change sexy Michael??? Noooooooooooooo!!! 😒

  • Haha πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  • I started off with her but changed...i thought he might be a bit more encouraging than he actually is!!!might have to check the others out

  • Oh, I find him very encouraging. He cheerd me at the end of week 3 πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

  • Perhaps i will wait & see πŸ˜‰

  • If i could choose i would choose Idris Alba or Simon Pegg 😊

  • Ah, I chose Michael because he remindd me of Idris Alba...

  • Nice 😍

  • Nice 😍

  • Its a bit frustrating...

  • Sarah called me amazing tonight 😊

  • Wow!!!that was rather lovely of her πŸ˜‰

  • She knows me so well πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
