W7? I cock a snook at week7 😝😝😝

Well I would if I had a snook.

So run 3 this morning. I had a headache (side effect of some meds on Monday) but I wanted to see if a run would help. Started badly, got worse till about halfway. Serious chat with self, slow down you can do it etc. Got there in the end. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

I think I've redefined Mr Plod (Noddys mate) as the the old bloke dragging himself around Dussindale Park, however I finished so it's 28 mins next week 😧😧😧

It's a cliche but still true " I did it, you can too"

Enjoy the achievements, learn from the struggles.

Nice one John! Those chats are vital I find! Well done for smashing W7 - W8 awaits, just 3 tiny little extra minutes. πŸ˜€

You’ve got this! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

What is a snook anyway? And will we have them post-Brexit?

I googled snook before posting so as not to offend anybody. It seems no one knows for sure, so I guess they'll be as plentiful then as they are now.

Phew. I was worried :-)

Top tip for googling it tho; can't be too careful with any phrase that has "cock" in it :-)

Yes, I didn't dare claim to be "Cock a' hoop".

Careful. You're starting to sound a bit cocky....

Well done for keeping going; it's not easy sometimes.

W7R1 for me on Saturday, when I hope to be able to thumb my nose at week 7 once and for all.

Good luck with week 8!

Cheers, I'm sure you'll not only thumb your nose, but blow a raspberry too.

Have a good run!!!
