W2R2 and I am like R2-D2

That is barrel shaped and slow - but FOCUSED!!! Came home after another 1 1/2 hour commute exactly one hour ago at 8.15pm. Having left the house at 7am it is a long day. I actually felt like moving and getting some fresh air- but had, just in case, instructed my other half to order me to go for a run, just in case I suffered some sophisticated brain trickery which convinced me to just sit down and watch TV. But I ran and I liked it. Yeah I am slow and my shins feel tense but I am doing it. Thanks running peeps for the encouragement 😃

Well done! I wrestle with the excuses in my head every day but today also did my W2R2. Impressive to do it after a long day at work and long commute! Good luck with the next step

Thank you. Every day is that long for me as I commute so it is overcoming the urge to just collapse that I need to overcome.

Yikes indeed, but I ran for 32 minutes, just arrived at work for a 12 hour shift, feeling perky at the moment, but who knows how I will be at 20:00🤩

Yep, just got in now🛌

Not sure I'll be making a habit of it though, but it was only 6 degrees that early, which made the run much more comfortable.

I see wine on my horizon 🥂. Good luck with your next run.
