Week 8 Run 1 - βœ… I ran for 28mins!! πŸ’ͺ🏼

Well who would have thought those tiny extra 3 minutes would bring such elation on completing the run?!

Firstly though started off a bit fast for the 1st 5 minutes. Completely slowed it down till I caught my breath again πŸ˜‰. But then the time just flew and despite how tired I was starting to feel I sprinted the last minute! Feeling great!!

Good luck to everyone with their runs this weekend especially my week 8 buddies. πŸ‘πŸΌ

I too started too fast for about the first 10 mins then had to slow as my breathing wasn’t getting any easier, I didn’t moan so much in this run mainly cos I cdn’t breathe enough to amongst all the nose blowing!! But yes, as you say, the sense of achievement after that extra 3 mins is great!! Roll on run 2 on Sunday. .

Well done! I’m starting week 8 this morning too after repeating week 7 last week (25 mins of running ruined me lol). I’m hoping I enjoy it as much as you! The Littledown is a nice place to run😊
