So, I’ve only gone and done it!! Sacré bleu! 😱 (I’m not French, but it’s fitting!) Oh yes, I do know I’ve got some way to go and I think W5 might be a bit of a brute, but I thought that about W3 and I totally surprised myself. That’s what’s so great for me. Unlocking my self-imposed limitations on every run. 🙌🏽
A couple of thoughts shared on the forum that have worked for me:
Are you still breathing? Pulse (check); Air (check)! Well, get your butt out there! Just take it slow and embrace the snail! No Speedy Gonzales! (Yes, I’m of that era! And I don’t think I’ll ever be like the Road Runner either, but you never know, one day...maybe)
A “bad” run is a “better” run than sitting on the coach. (Providing you’re not in physical pain! Mental pain - well.....you can shut up! 🤐)
It’s a change for life, not just for today.
You’re not alone, there is someone out there, just like you, just where you are now and of course, those who have only gone and done it! 😁 Thank you to all of those great examples, for sharing and encouraging.
My own: Be easy on yourself, have good humour, laugh at yourself and just have fun! Remember that you’re doing it!
I hope all of this stands me in good stead for the week ahead. It’s nice that W5 starts on a Friday! It’s a really great way to start the weekend! Pumped!! ❤️
