Grad W1R2 - more tech gremlins but a personal goal achieved ๐Ÿ˜‰

I donโ€™t think the app likes me re-running week 9 as part of consolidation ๐Ÿคฃ somehow lost MJ halfway through again. Perhaps he is weaning me off relying on his coaching!

Anyway, slightly different route but the same park. I worked out a 5k should be all the way around the outsidโ€”ish, using Google Maps back in October last year when I downloaded the app, and then did start until May!!!

So Iโ€™d had this route in my mind for a while, and when I walked the dog during the winter I could not imagine running it non-stop. It seemed so vast!

I started my watch only after the 5min walk, then lost MJ. One small route diversion to avoid a tense looking dog and a worried owner I was catching up with, I didnโ€™t mind cutting across the grass, and when I checked I was at 31mins so slowed to a walk and then switched the watch off to cool down.

I could have carried on back to where I started, to be honest, because I know I can run for 39mins - but I donโ€™t want to push it too much too soon. I know I can do it and that was the point of today ๐Ÿ‘

Nice! 4K in half an hour is pretty good - I'm usually about 3.8. MJ can be a fickle coach - he bailed on me once or twice too.

Thanks Mike! I'd seen others had experienced some issues, but didn't know you'd also had the same problem. Oh well! The music kept going, which is the main thing for me!
