Week 8 Run 1

β€’10 Replies


I am still finding the runs hard and I look like I may keel over by the end (not feel - just look!) but wow what an achievement it is to run 28 mins straight 😱😊

5 runs left - just 5 and I will have done it!! I started this very very spontaneously one Saturday morning I just got up and said - am off for a run and that was it I was off!!

My hip seems much better since changed trainers twice!! And that seemed my only obstacle so onwards and upwards to graduation 😊😊😊😊

Great job. It’s hard, but let’s face it it was impossible a few weeks ago πŸ˜€

Enjoy closing this out, only one tiny step up remains.

Brilliant, and what a fabulous attitude! You’ve got this! Run Redtracey!!! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜€


It's a shame we don't all record and upload videos just after we've completed that day's run. It would be marvellous to see everyone's expressions and emotions be they good or bad.

Yesterday, I nearly collapsed into someone's front garden after doing 3 minutes. That was almost worthy of a "You've Been Framed" clip.
