So despite really looking forward to the first run of week 8 this morning, I found most of it quite hard. Spent a lot of time faffing with ear-phones at the beginning which didn’t help but eventually set off and managed the early incline quite well.
Ten minutes in and although it felt harder than anticipated, I’d settled into a steady (read slow) pace when Sarah suggested that I might like to up the pace. Really?!? So my question is- do snails have different speeds and if so, what does a fast snail look like?
Looking back on my ‘map your run’ stats I must have tried to do as I was told because the middle two km we’re at a slightly faster speed - but hey , for a 50 something overweight lady who 8 weeks ago had never run before- I actually ran for 28 minutes without stopping today!!! So 🐌 or not, I’m smashing it 😊
