W5R2 - Friday feeling

Despite having a terrible nights sleep I set off feeling fairly positive and focussed on not running too fast (Michael reiterated that, bless him) and believing that 8 minutes is really no time at all 🤣. Felt I could have carried on a bit which I guess means my pace is about right for now. Only need a 4 min mile for the last bit and I’ll be on target 🎯. Today mind and body were in synch - a first. Off to Lichfield so my next run will be around the cathedral and I get to walk with a slow Jack Russell and a speedy Boston terrier 🏃‍♀️👊

There is absolutely no need for speed with this programme. Slower the better in fact! So don't worry at all about pace, distance, time or anything. Just enjoy your sessions with Michael.

I have a slow dog/fast dog scenario. It's a game innit

You will - keep your pace steady and don’t think of the time but focus on what’s going on around you - mud, birds, cattle grids, branches everywhere 😂 you will smash it 👊
