Week 6 in the bag!!

Well that was the hardest one yet but I just ran 25 minutes and feeling unbelievably proud of myself; it was tough, after 8 mins I wobbled but slowed down ( thanks for the tip Michael J) and steadily got through it; even upped the speed in the last 2 minutes! And had the mental capacity NOT to wear my t shirt inside out, which I’d done in run2. Distance covered 2 miles- will I get up to 3.2 in another 3 weeks? Watch this space

Well done you! You are two runs ahead of me and 25 minutes in one stretch sounds quite something! You deserve to feel proud! Congratulations! All the best for week 7.

Well done! I found it quite tough too yesterday but it was such a beautiful morning. I also covered just over 2 miles although that included warm up and wondering about whether I’ll ever get any faster - I feel sooooo slooow and yet sooo amazed that I can do it at all! I can still remember what wk1 felt like when I could hardly run for 1 minute let alone 25.

Week 7 here we come!!
