W7R3 - done but not a great run 😞

I’ve finished W7 in a not so great way. I ran this morning as it was cooler but felt humid. I ran nice and steady and thought I was going to do well. In 25mins I only ran 3.59k, but my pace was the best ever. Usually manage just over 4K so the distance difference is not a big issue. I have a sneaking suspicion I was running a bit faster than normal and whilst it explains better pace, distance suffered.

Well done Maybe58, I also completed week7, I did post my report at about 14.10 but it does not seem to have appeared here, not sure why.

I did that one yesterday- struggled with it a bit so well done for getting through it. Onwards to W8. Good luck.

It was strange struggling with it as it wasn’t the first run of 25mins. I don’t know whether to start Week 8 Wednesday or give myself a two day break and start Thursday?

No - I know what you mean I thought it would be easier than it was - maybe that's why. I usually try to approach it with no expectations & a "what will be will be" attitude. Maybe give yourself a two day break & approach it with fresh eyes. Good luck whatever you decide. Keep us posted.

I think you’re right with ‘what will be will be’ approach. I’ll possibly will start Week 8 on Thursday.

I think you’re putting yourself down. You’ve had a weeks holiday and continued to run , further because of the fog and you didn’t know where you were. And it’s hot and humid. It’s not a race as everyone says one step at a time. You’re doing amazing.

I start week 9 tonight. Last run with the girls and then I’m on my own.

Wow, that’s amazing! Keep me posted! I’d love to do the Silchester Fun Run route again?!

I’m very good at reassuring others re bad runs but not good at taking it!
