MJ says I’m a runner 😀

Finally gritted my teeth to do run 3 of week 6. I’ve carried on doing the 10 minute runs for a while because I couldn’t face 25 minutes. In fact I would have been happy doing 3 or 4 reps of the 10 minutes with 3 of walking in-between.

But the weather was perfect for it this morning so I set off in a cool drizzle and surprised myself by even managing to speed up a bit for the last minute.

Discovered I’d forgotten to turn Map my Walk on though so not sure how far I got. Disappointed since I do like my data 🤓

Such a sense of satisfaction☺️. Week 7 here I come!

Thanks. Just got back and it went really well. So happy! As you said, conditions today were good. I love the heat but not for running!! Anyway we are now runners whatever the weather!!! 🙌

Well done. 💪💪 I’ll probably move on slowly but I’ll graduate in the end. See you there!

We can definitely do this. I agree, take your time. I’ve repeated runs when I haven’t felt ready to move on. I think I’m going to struggle if the weather improves but at least we are on the final stretch.

For once I am almost hoping it doesn’t warm up next week!

Well done! I agree about perfect running weather conditions today. I love the runner but I’m concerned about running in heat. You’ve got this now. 👍🏽

Heat is an issue for me. I run in a pink top and end up with my face blending in with it. 😅
