Week 7, Run 1 = Done it! :)

Pleased to report that I managed Week 7, Run 1. :)

Was starting to question what on earth I was doing but then Laura said I had 5 mins left so I knew if I didn't finish I would be so disappointed with myself and so I managed it.

Phew! :) :)

Well done!

Same run today for me too...I was running into the wind for the last 10 min of my run, felt like I was running on the spot lol

Good luck with the next run.

Thanks. I found it hard but got there in the end. Most of it is mental barriers I think and stopping listening to myself saying I should stop.

Good luck for your next run too! :)

Ah, that’s where breaking it down into 5 minute chunks has worked for me. 5 x 5 minute runs, before you know it you’re on the last 5 minutes. Still hard though!!! Well done you 🏃‍♀️😀😀🏃‍♀️

Thanks.

Yeah when Laura says it is half way I can sort of work out how many songs I have left to the end which gives me a 'rough' idea. Good luck for your next run! :)

The 28 minutes isnt any harder you’ll be glad to hear or easier in my case but I manage to do it. Once I hear from Jo that I’m halfway I know I can finish it. Good luck with your next run.🙂

Well done! Feels great doesn’t it! I also work out time left by how many songs :) today I kept repeating a song that I enjoyed and seemed to work for my pace and it felt like less time 😂 it’s definitely a mental battle too!

Thank you! :) I do feel like a fraud, I can't quite believe I have actually got this far.

All the best for your next run! :)
