Woosh, 2nd run of week 8 completed this morning. 3 minutes in I was ready to stop, didn't feel like it this morning but pushed on. Told myself, get to that happy place where you forget you're running and you start making plans for the day. Couldn't be happier that I have a day ahead of client work, housework and admin, sorted my head out! Before I knew it, Laura had rung the half time bell. Went a bit further this time (4.52km - the podcast from start to finish) and my pace quickened too (8.38 min/km). I'm happy as it really was a test of mental strength today.
W8R2 - mind over matter: Woosh, 2nd run of week... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Well run Rooster!! Your destination is even closer👏👏
Wow amazing! Good to know you pushed through when feeling like giving up - that inspires me 😉
And there you have it - a proper runner! 👏👏 Mind over matter is key and you’ve smashed it! Yay. 😀
Just a handful of runs to go now. Almost podium time! You’ve got this! 👊
Thank you, don't think I stopped talking to myself this morning, I didn't enjoy that part at all but I did get to the end of it so I must have felt stronger than I did. The podium is in sight!
I doubt myself every single run during the first 5 minutes, no matter how far I’m running that day. I tell the gremlins where they can go and keep going. Running turns us into gremlin slayers, and you’re doing it brilliantly! 💪 😀
Great job... sucky run started and you got through it and turned it around. Almost week 9, enjoy your next one
This is exactly how I felt on this very run last night!! It’s great to just get to ‘that’ place and get on with the actual run - and it always feels amazing afterwards!
Great pace too-your totally heading for a 5k graduation!!! Enjoy run 3!

shocked, this is the longest and furthest I’ve ever run in my life! I never would have thought 5...
it feels like an achievement considering when I started this I did not imagine this day would come...
