Finally completed week 7!!

After an awful week with suspected food poisoning and then sore calf muscles and pain in my knee (Think I strained something during a class at the gym) I've finally completed week 7. I went yesterday to try week 7 run 2 and it felt better than ever. A week of rest from running definitely helped me. I've had sore muscles from all the running and training I've been doing recently and when I tried last week they screamed at me to stop!! But I've been today and done run 3!! Managed to increase my speed a touch too as I've had to slow it right down before that. So so proud of myself as I'd never even imagined I could run this time last year. 😬

Sounds like you've had a sh**y week. Well done on finishing week 7. It's just 6 more runs then you will graduate! Wow!

As the runs get longer I found it more tiring on my body and had to ease off my other aerobic classes (spin classes - I love 'em). I don't want to sound like I know what's best for you, because I know that I don't, but take care and listen to your body. Don't overdo it. Take care and enjoy your last 2 weeks!

Oh i am. I'm doing a 26 mile charity walk in 2 weeks time so I'm not wanting to injure myself before that! Im having a week of rest before my walk so my legs are rested for it. 😊

Good luck, 26 mile charity walk! You are a keener! 😀 You will be great!

What about the walking? Could you have done a super long walk like that, this time last year?

I did 19 miles last year but had to stop because of the timing limit. Hoping I'll complete it this year.

That’s great Kat. Sometimes our body just needs a rest to be able to come back stronger.

I’m so glad you’re feeling ok again! 6 little runs to graduation! You can do it! 😀
