Week 8 run 1 - feeling good

Well, the additional 3 mins from last week felt fine! Chose a route this morning where I'd normally run through an open farm gate but for the first time this morning it was closed and I just couldn't work out how to open it! (I go through a lot of them round here so have seen all sorts). Had to climb over the gate there and back but it didn't seem to break my stride much :)

I normally run on Mon, Wed and Fri but this week I'm all over the place again with work so I think I can squeeze Wednesday morning in but I'm not sure about Friday... Would it be the end of the world to do a Thursday evening run after a Wednesday early morning?

Well done! Personally I’d say it would be ok as a one off and you’re not feeling any aches and pains. 😊

Thanks Rip! I don’t tend to do evening runs so I’ll see how I feel then but it’d be good to have the option ☺️

I don’t do eve runs either. Did it once in C25k and was so stiff the next day. Too late for me. 😊

Tut tut Ripcurlrana71 encouraging people to break the rules! I would never do that 😉🤣seriously though southlundon as long as you feel OK I would go for it, I did a 9k yesterday morning and am planning on running this evening, you have to do what works for you and fits in with the rest of your life

😂 Cheers Berk! I feel fine (touch wood) so I hope it’ll be okay. Weekends are packed for me so I prefer mid week runs. Will see how it all pans out 😊

TUT TUT!!! 🙄

I have a friend who is on week 5 and she can’t set regular days because of family commitments. So instead she will tag two runs onto each other eg she did w4r3 then straight away w5r1 a few days ago. I’ve told her it’s not a good idea but I don’t want to put her off either iykwim 😕

That’s not a great idea so early in the plan - we are only baby runners then without much of a clue what are bodies think of it. 😕

Well done southlundon! I’ve seen others have done another run as a one off and it’s been ok. You’ll probably kind of know in yourself on the day! Great stuff! W9 now! Woooh! ❤️

Fab I made a mistake on my title and randomly put run 3 when it was actually run 1 - wishful thinking! 😂😂 Looking forward to moving up to 30 mins next week though 👍🏻
