Run 1 - Week 4.....smashed it!! 👍😆

After struggling with run 3 week 3...I totally smashed Run 1 week 4, I ran at night which I loved, I lack confidence and find it difficult running round the village. I just hope the rest of week 4 goes the same way. I never ever imagined running for 5 minutes, 16 in total. I bounced into the house buzzing. I know all runs aren’t going to be like that one. But I felt amazing afterwards. Bring on run 2 week 4 tomorrow.

Very well done - you deserve to feel good.

I also run round the village in the dark - not because I particularly want but because my son insists on it so no-one recognises me (not a pretty site apparently!)

Keep it up!

As for your son, just watch how proud he'll be when you graduate after W9R3!!!

well done a great feeling, though each run/week will be a challenge each and every run will make you stronger

Awesome! I find that I rock the first day of the week, and then I fall short Day 2.

I have found that before too, so I start feeling nervous on run days that I’ll struggle. That’s the only time I’ve ever felt so good after completing a run. It’s run 2 today and I’ve not made it out the door yet because of the rain. Hopefully tonight will be ok. Thanks for your support good luck with your running.
