Press PLAY!

I was quite pleased with my multi-tasking this evening: dinner prepared, trainers on, music downloaded for the first time (needed distraction for W6R1!), food in the oven, phone packed snuggly into my nifty new running belt and I was ready to roll!

Well into my warm-up walk I was missing Sarah and thinking maybe the music had interfered with the app. I checked, only to find I’d accidentally paused the run progress at about 30 seconds in! As a result I had a warm-up of almost 10 minutes as I don’t think you can move the little bar onto where you should actually be...

The rest of the run went really well and I’m enjoying challenging myself. The music definitely helped keep my mind off achy legs and the time that remained. The 5 extra minutes may have helped too, and luckily the dinner didn’t suffer but was nicely cooked in time for my return! 🥘🍽

You can move it forward. I must have pressed something whilst it was in my hand and I had just set off when Sarah told me I had run for 5 minutes. I thought blimey I'm getting so good at this running lark that I didn't even feel that first 5.......!😉

😂 Can you tell me how you can move it?

At the bottom either side of the play and pause button is forward and rewind. ☺

Thanks! I’ll try to resist the temptation to move the session along a bit, now that I know it’s possible! 😉
