Week 9 Run 2 ✅ but hard work in ☀️

Week 9 Run 2 ✅ but hard work in ☀️

It was slow, it was hard and it was so warm. I only covered 3.5k in the 30mins but it’s done and I definitely won’t be running mid morning again.

But best part are the views as very blessed with a beautiful canal on our doorstep which does make this process easier and I do love the scenery. Plus the ‘locals’ don’t bat an eyelid at my huffing, puffing and bad hair!! 😊 plus loved seeing heron again 👍🏻

Well done Jo. What a beautiful place to run. I’ve just done run1 and you run at the same pace as me! Not bothered tho - gives us time to appreciate the world around us, as you say!

Well done Gill 👍🏻 We are nearly there, feeling very mixed emotions about finishing this process but that’s what it’s all been about 😊🏃🏽‍♀️

Lovely view, congratulations on the run. Much respect for anyone running when the sun is that high in the sky.

It was so hard and I seriously underestimated just how muggy it was. I was flagging at five minute mark and test was a real slog. But scenery is godsend 👍🏻

Crack of dawn for me recently or I just melt. I remember back to my first runs, just after the clocks went forward, and I was freezing cold. Never happy!!

3.5 is great.

I only run at 6.7kmph ( on treadmill so I know speed!) so will only be doing 3.35 km in 30 mins. I’m a long way from running 5k. I’m only short and this speed seems ok for this length of time. I was doing 7kmph on earlier runs but dropped it slightly to make sure I could get to end!!

You’ve done so well. I’m going to try and get motivated for run two tomorrow and hope to get run three over weekend.

Good luck. You’re almost there
