w1 complete!

We've done it! At last! This time no bottle of self-congratulatory fizz like we had after r1 and r2 (surely grape juice is better than the banana and water recommended by Larua?) but to have managed the week it is almost as good as a nice cool glass of bubbly.

We are a lot more confident about the upcoming weeks having read everyone's posts and we are starting to just about think of maybe running in the morning perhaps...we aren't really morning people but want to be!

Well done to you both! I’m not a morning person AT all, but prefer to run in the mornings (strangely) otherwise I’d keep putting it off. And, I love that good buzz feeling that then lasts all day. Onwards to W2! Good luck! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

Thanks! We will try to do it. We always have good intentions about having a proper structured morning but it never lasts long, gradually tea-breakfast-chat-work becomes -tea-chat-work becomes -chat work- and then just a rush out of the door and into the car as soon as possible. If we put our running in the morning then there is hope that our non-running waking hours will have to come in line and then we can hopefully use that structure to have a proper pre-work morning regime! And maybe some swimming. I've been a swim leisure centre member for 18m and haven't really used it for a year - again finding the time. But those other mornings could be ideal for working it in.

Glad you ditched the champagne 🍾 sharing a bottle after every run might bring problems (not least financial ones!) congratulations on week one ✅

not really bubbly anyway unfortunately - Sainsbury's spanish stuff - perfectly serviceable. Probably not ideal for rehydration though especially as we get into the more demanding weeks.

Still a whopping 27 bottles over the course of the programme!

when you put it like that it does sound rather a lot!

I normally measure things in real ale pints - calories, money, units of alcohol, I don't really think of the Cava standard so much.
