W8R1. Another rainy run complete

β€’19 Replies

Went out at 16:30 and actually ran for 28 minutes. Dead chuffed, but I think I'll be giving myself an extra rest day before my next run. My legs didn't feel like they were mine when I stopped, just walking felt odd at first, and now my broken big toe (old injury) is aching.

Still happy though! 😊

Haha, yeah thanks!!


Slow and steady as you go and well done... my toe that I have broken oodles of times always aches when it rains:)

Broken toes really don't like the damp do they. I won't ask how you've managed to break your toe so many times!! 😲

I think I've got legs like you! Congratulations on the run considering you've had a broken toe as well πŸ˜€

Jelly legs are us haha. It's an old injury from an unfortunate incident with a glass chopping board. Likes to remind me every now and again that it happened


Well done, congratulations on moving on. 28 minutes seem amazing!! Love reading yours, Tasha99 and lagatachocolate updates before I go out. So motivating for me being on the journey πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Hello Mergirl101 how is it going? Have had a week off, needed to rest (and too much eating and drinking..,) but have now done W7r1 so am back in the game!

Hi Ajay99! good to hear you are back on track! I'm going well, feeling much better this week than last. Sometimes we just need to back off a bit!

Mand102Graduate in reply to mergirl101

I'm still in shock I've actually ran that long! Have you done yours yet?

mergirl101Graduate in reply to Mand102

Yes ☺️πŸ’ͺπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

It’s the same for me; a real motivation hearing that you guys have completed your latest run πŸ™‚


Well done! I'd definitely recommend extra rest days, you don't want to run the risk of an injury at this stage.

Mand102Graduate in reply to Nictwit

Yes I'm going to be careful. Legs feel fine today but I'm still going to give myself an extra days rest. An injury is the last thing I want!


Jelly legs! Mine do that every run still. But they recover so much quicker now. I also found an extra rest day was the way forward when it came to the longer runs. But you did it! Well done! πŸ‘πŸΌ

Proper jelly legs! Thay first couple of minutes cool off walk was difficult! Here's hoping the extra day helps


Well done! I'm a week behind you now, just too much eating and drinking last week to run! Did my W7R1 today and it was slow, wet but fine! Good to be back at it after a week of indulgence!

Mand102Graduate in reply to Ajay99

Ooh, sounds like you've had a fantastic week. Does you good to let your hair down 😊 Glad your run went well
