W7R1 achieved, looking forward to the next one

Went with a different running partner today which was odd as I’ve got used to talking 80% of the time to my normal running pal. Makes all the difference when I’m not distracted by talking as it made the 25 mins seem to never end.

Thinking of trying run 2 this week on my own with music and see how I get on as my running pal is off on holiday in a couple of weeks. Need to get used to pushing myself when on my own. 😀

You can talk while you run? Impressive! Good luck with run 2!

To be honest it’s talking but with heavy breathing at times but it’s getting better and helps me get my breathing under control strangely 😀

Well done LadyBeer, you’ve definitely got this! 👏👏👏👏👏🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

Hello LadyBeer, well done on running for twenty five minutes. I’m hoping to do the same on my next run, I listen to music as I don’t have a running buddy like you. I use the forums to check my virtual running buddies.

Once again well done, every step is a success which we all should celebrate.

You’re doing great. Any change in routine makes it feel harder, so I’d miss my running buddy too. You took out that 25 though... into the closing stages now.

If you miss talking, you could always sing out loud to your music. 😁

You are doing great and smashing it. Bring on the rest of week 7 🤛

Great running!

I talk to myself and sing along to my tunes 😊 I'm heavily into 80's music and enjoy warbling along to Karma Chameleon and the like!

Do you run the same route? If so, maybe try somewhere new if your usually is starting to feel endless?

It’s quite cool to listen to music that isn’t yours... so like a Spotify running playlist or something just listening to the lyrics can make the time go quite fast ... obviously provided it’s not music you detest 😭
