Week 8 completed


Didn’t go camping as I have a leaky window problem when it rains which is hopefully getting sorted this week. On a positive it means I can start W9 this week 😀😃😁

When I started to run this evening I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to complete it as my shins hurt with every pound of my foot on the pavement. A few mins in I noticed it easing off and I felt better.

This was my best run of W8. This only time I walked was at traffic lights while waiting for traffic to get out of my way and stop ruining my run 🤣

Looking forward to next week. Actually really excited about it!

I've found that I do that little jog on the spot now when I have to wait to cross a road. A couple of months ago I used to find that quite amusing when I saw people at the side of the road. Funny how things change!

I’ve considered it but feel to silly. I suppose I’ll get there in the end. I use it as a chance to catch my breath at the moment.

Haha I used to think joggers were mad and would hurt their knees. Now I'm a jogger and have had 1 bad knee but it healed and I got cushioned shoes and I don't care who is 👀ing!

Yay, week 9 here you come! You're doing well 🏃👍
