W6R2 - enjoyed that one πŸ˜€

Oh wow, I enjoyed it way more than R1. I was expecting it to be equally as hard, but it felt fantastic. ❀️

The weather helped, no doubt. A tiny sprinkle of rain at the start of the first 10 minute run was most welcome, together with a cooling breeze.

I ran with my daughter. Well, we started together and she literally ran off, ran back, looped me etc! My dog would have had more of a workout with her, that’s for sure! πŸ•

Second 10 minute run was nice too. Eeek, just realised there are no more walking breaks from now on! 😳 However, I feel confident that I’ll be ok for the 25 minuter on Thursday, but I won’t be complacent. I’ll let 🐌🐌🐌 crawl past me as slow as they like! I’ve got this! πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻

Hope you all have a lovely day today, whether you're running or not! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸ˜€πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Congrats on finishing r2!!! Also very glad to hear it wasn’t so bad 😁. As for no more breaks this actually does make me nervous a little but I’m sure it’s just more my mind playing games with me. Well 21 hours till my run 😝

You’re right, it’s all mind games. Can’t wait to give the 25er a go on Thursday.

Enjoy your next one - don’t forget to let us know how it went. You’ll be fine! Just settle into your favourite pace and the 10 minutes seem to fly by! πŸ˜€πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜Ž

Well I’ll be posting in around 22 hours. And I’m sure it will be me saying how I kicked its butt and of course about how many 🐒 lapped me

Well done you. Glad to hear this as I do mine tomorrow morning. The no more walking intervals after tomorrow scares me a bit (a lot) though!

Well Done !! I did my Wk6Rn2 this morning and found the same as you, much, much better than Rn1, felt really good, although I must admit my pace was so slow a snail could pass me, but I'm hoping that will improve, roll on Friday, looking forward to it now :)
