Week 9 run 3 - Graduation πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ“

Wow! 9 weeks ago I never thought I would get this far.... I didn’t actually think I’d manage the 3 mins runs let alone running for a whole 30 mins.... although today I ran for 35 because I accidentally pulled out my headphones and didn’t realise the app had paused πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I only realised because I had gone past half way without recognition from Sarah.

If anyone reading this is just starting out, you can do this... if I can anyone can! Slay the gremlins (that’s the voice in your head that tells you not to bother and you should be at home eating cake 🍰)

I have really loved this journey, thanks for all the support!

I’m going to keep running as I’ve not managed the 5k in 30 mins yet... but I will let you know when I do! Also looking forward to some more treadmill runs and park runs too!

Many congratulations Emma. You’ve earned that cake,

And don’t you feel great knowing you can run for 30 minutes. That’s TEN times 3 minutes btw!

That exactly what I thought! It’s insane to think I can run that far and today I really enjoyed it, and added an extra block to my run 😊

I’m definitely having cake today to celebrate πŸŽ‰πŸ°

Wow! Well done! I'm on Week 3 so a third of the way through; I love reading about other people's journeys and success as it makes me feel as if I can do it too. Enjoy ALL the cake!!!

Thank you!

My Gremlins started around week 6/7 I think it was the thought of the long runs, I change my route and made sure that my playlist was tracks that kept my pace. As soon as I started to think about turning round and going home I said no, we are doing this and kept going... by half way I was fine 😊
