Much better this time. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Thanks so much for your support after a gruelling W4 1st run on Saturday. I thought Iโ€™d reached my limit but obviously the old muscle memory kicked in and didnโ€™t let me down today. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Well done!! I went for a longish walk today and the pains are still there. So, no run tonight. Will try for Wednesday. If still no good, I'll leave it until next Monday and will restart at W2R1. Sooooo frustrating :(

Oh I can imagine the frustration when you started so well. But thereโ€™s all year to nail this and we will at some point. Good that you walked today to try it out. Thatโ€™s better than nothing. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Thank you! It's taken years to get off the couch, so a few extra weeks here or there are nothing. I'll get there :)

Thankyou! I must have been slower today because of where my route ended but that can only mean that I went off too fast last Saturday.

It felt a lot better today. First 3 minute run hurt but after that I settled into a bit of a rhythm albeit a slow one! ๐Ÿ˜‚
