W8R1 second attempt YES!

The world is a wonderful place! (This may be a runner's high. If so, I'm a runner!)

I couldn't complete this run on Friday, so I went back to the route and direction I used for W7R3 and it was great. Difficult in the middle, but I realised I'd sped up going down a slope, and when I slowed down it was definitely easier. Weirdly I only ran about 100m further past Wednesday's finish line, but I didn't notice where I started, so perhaps I did a shorter, faster warm-up walk. I also had an app glitch so I knew I'd run for more than 25 mins last time.

Anyway, so happy to have got this one done. Next week is really busy, so I may not be able to run again before Saturday, but I'll try to get out early on Tuesday

Good luck to all the other strugglers, and don't give up if you need a couple of attempts - you'll feel great as you get stronger and more confident.

Happy Sunday afternoon (depending on your time zone), everybody.

Love Lizz xxx

Hey Liz, well done you smashed it, I don’t know what it is about week 8 but it seems to catch everyone out, I breezed through the first 7 weeks but Week 8 for some reason was a right b*#$h to complete, I had two practice runs on that week.

Good job on getting it done👍👍👍
