For some reason I always found the first run of a new week tough. No idea why, but run 2 was always better. Good luck and keep going!

I do too. My theory is that this is partly because I have no idea when the time announcements will come. I can't estimate time when I'm running and squinting at my watch is too awkward, so I'm running into the unknown in a way.

I think with me it's because I overdid the merriment on Friday and Saturday nights 😂

But you did it! Woohoo! Remember to slow down more as the runs get longer 👌🏽

Slow things right down, get everything slower and you’ll buy yourself time and puff to finish the session more comfortably 🙂

Well done Tanya. Having to push yourself is good, that’s the mental strength coming along nicely right there. Embrace the difficult days and celebrate beating them.
