Hard work today but I completed week 6!

β€’9 Replies

It felt like so much was against me this morning. I wanted to do the run, despite going on holiday yesterday. If you'd said that to be before now I would have laughed!

The hope was there would be a lovely coast path near the campsite but there's only fields, so yesterday I scoped out a possible route in the field next to me.

I had a couple of drinks last night and a bad night's sleep in the tent but despite that I still went for it.

I almost stopped so many times, the first ten minutes were incredibly tough and I felt a bit silly running round the same fields about five times until the local cows weren't suprised by me, but now feel very proud of myself and I'm officially a runner!

My boyfriend who said he'd come too is still in bed! πŸ™„

On with the holiday..

Good for you and well done! I run in a field and get some funny looks from cows and dog walkers. We're camping in Cornwall for what will be my week 8 so hoping to find a nice place to run. Happy hols!

Thanks, the cows reactions are great aren't they! It's a lovely spot here. Enjoy your holiday too.

Oh wow, kudos to you for running despite all those potential reasons not to! I’m off on hols to Munich and beyond on Monday. I’ll be doing part of W7 and the start of W8 there, so I’m hoping there’s somewhere good!

Good for you finishing pesky W6! On to the serious stuff now!

Thanks for the support. Some runs make you feel if that's possible then anything is!
