Week 7 -done :-)

...finished W7R3 earlier today :-)

It's been an interesting week -was very grumpy before and after runs 1 and 2. Realised I was putting pressure on myself '...not fast enough...not far enough...' -reminded myself I'm not in a race, this is for me. Run 3 was lovely, took the time to acknowledge how far I've come in 7 weeks :-)

In other news I've signed up for my first 5km (Supernova Run), in November.

Onwards to Week 8 :-)

Good job on the run and the mindset. Pressure is for later, and only then if you real want it. Enjoy week 8

Yes, you have come a long way. Well done you. Pace/distance can be your challenge when you graduate. Getting through the runs is your challenge right now. Great idea to sign up to a 5km run now.

Thank you :-) Yes, think I just needed to remind myself to not take myself too seriously lol (fluorescent tutu and legwarmers for November methinks) :-)
