Having kept up the plan religiously for the last 7 weeks, week 8 proved a bit of a hiccup with the onset of a blooming cough that left me chesty and feeling tired. I made the decision to postpone my planned runs for week 8 but have to say felt a bit frustrated - but better late than never! So tonight it was back on the esplanade but I was dreading the thought of a 30 min run. Could I do it? Would I survive? Having not run for a week - would I actually be able to run for more than 5 mins? ......Well I needn’t have worried - I did it! I actually did it! It was tough & I had to set myself markers to get along the route however what I learnt most tonight was that running is not just about legs and lungs but equally as important is a positive mindset! We must keeping believing in ourselves and yes, things won’t always go to plan but we need to be sensible and look after ourselves - and you know what? We’ll still be able to get right back on track and might even have a stronger run! Bring on the last 2 runs ... I can’t wait to graduate 🙌
2 Runs left ..... How did that happen? - Couch to 5K

You are so right running is as much in the head as in the legs. I was reading recently if your run is getting tough then smile as it kids your brain and helps you run better.
Graduation for you is a dead cert I’d say.
Thank you! Great tip which I’m definitely going to try out 😁
An inspiring post! Well done you! 😬
Well done that’s fantastic 👏👏 that podium is within touching distance 😊 enjoy the rest of Wk9’s runs!
Well done you... I missed this post... I was heading back to the Coast I think Or already here
You did very well and relaxing into these last runs is a joy.
Keep it slow and steady...simple as that.. the legs will begin to find their happy pace... but they are still building up, as is your stamina and strength; the stamina and strength exercises need to build up alongside the running.
You live by the sea, lucky you... I only get there very other week... but the runs along the Esplanade are a joy and great for some stamina intervals
Cruise your way towards the podium... the badge is waiting
