W4R1 - Better than expected!

W4R1 - Better than expected!

Good morning, just back from the first run of Week 4, can't believe I've got here so quickly! Went well, better than expected. Keeping my breathing under control is definitely making a difference.

A bit of drizzle for most of the way, halfway through the final 5 minute run, the heavens opened it was torrential! There was a shelter in the park but when I reached it I still had about 30 seconds to go, so must have looked very odd doing mini laps around it!

Actually really invigorating, you do know you are alive! Pinched a pic that suits the mood! Hope everyone else's weeks are progressing well :-)

Lunchtime walk and evening run both in rain - my hair has gone nuts! We do suffer for our art. Well done to you 👍

I know how you feel about getting there so quickly! I did W4R1 a week ago and freaked a bit that I was already on Week 4 - daft I know but there you have it. Anyway somehow I couldn't bring myself to go out again last week - and then suddenly today I knew I wanted to go out and do W4R2. I just got back, and it was really ok, it didn't feel more than I can cope with at all, and I am feeling high! 😅😅

That’s awesome, well done 👍 I think it’s going to be more of a mental/confidence struggle going forward!
