Snail pace ๐ŸŒ

Wk2 run2! Went nice and early to beat the heat. Completed the run which Iโ€™m really pleased about however my right ankle is playing up which Iโ€™ve never had before, painful on the joint but still good enough to get through,however itโ€™s not helping my pace Iโ€™m SO SLOW I think at one point a snail did pass me! Iโ€™m very unfit but I feel like Iโ€™m lightly jogging not running ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ will speed come? Iโ€™m no where near 5k atm more like 3k.

Speed is secondary to running 30 minutes. It may or may not come during the course, you can chase it later if you want to.

For now, thereโ€™s a lot in the snails club here and youโ€™re in very good company. Youโ€™re doing great, keep racing the snails!

I'm on wk 3 and I'm running to the motto of Slowly Slowly Catchee Monkey. Speed can come later if required but at the moment I'm happy with how I'm doing.
