W4R3 🌧 and 💨

Today was the first time I’ve run in the wind and rain. It was great...I didn’t dissolve and I didn’t end up in some bizarre place having to click my trainers together muttering “There’s no place like home.” I would even do it again! Woo-hoo!

The run was ok. The final 5 minutes only felt like 3 hours rather than the 10 hours that it did in R1 of this week. I have also noticed my legs aren’t as achy and tired as they were at the beginning of C25K, so that’s got to be good.

Bring on week 5! :)

I'm finding this post positive Oaktree2, I completed W4R1 today. Totally get what you mean about the last 5 minutes 🤣, so I'm hoping R2 is slightly better and that my legs/ankles hold up

Lol, it goes on forever doesn’t it?! Then Laura comes on to say when it’s half way through! Half way? Seriously??!! 😂😂

It does get easier though Sweetpea. I’ve started leaving 2 rest days and keeping a 🐌 pace really does help. I’ll keep my 👀 open for your posts. You’ll smash it! :)

Fabulous! Found all 3 runs were completely different. R1 journey of discovery. R2 was a struggle & R3 at times I felt like a runner. Well done you’re doing great
