W4R1 was a rollercoaster!

β€’3 Replies

Ok, so at the start of the run I looked at the times for W4 and was fully convinced i would have to stop at some point, if not in the first 5 minute run, certainly in the second. I found the 3 minute runs last week difficult enough as it was. I made my peace with it.

By the end of the first 5 minute run I felt fine and I was like "Oh sh** I can actually do this!"

By the end of the second 3 minute run I was like "No I can't... No I can't... No I can't...".

The last 5 minute run involved 3 separate incidents of bats flying within 2cm of my face. Not helpful, guys! Note to self: run earlier.

By half way through the 5 minutes I was like "I CAN do this!".

4 minutes in "AAAAARRRRRGGGHHH!"

But I didn't stop once, bats and all. I'm extremely proud of myself! 😁

Well done you keep up the good work. You got this


See now, the thing is you were right first time... oh sh** you can actually do this! Very well done. Hope the wildlife didn’t drive you too batty.

Enjoy the next one.
