W7R3: Really tough but I’m glad for the small win! Really needed it!

I really needed this run today and I feel so much better now I’m on the other side!!! I have been feeling a little overwhelmed/stressed since yesterday! Nothing changed in my circumstances really but life suddenly felt a little much. I wanted the run to end before I even started which isn’t the best of starts 😂 Gritted my teeth and coaxed my mind into keeping going! Happy weekends everybody!!

Well done BP on gritting your teeth and getting out there xxx Hopefully the endorphins helped 🧠🐬 (brain dolphins lol)

Sometimes it's more satisfying to struggle through and make it.

Maybe slow your pace?

Anyways, happy running 🏃 😸

I was much slower than usual. Don’t think I could go any slower. It was just a bad day/run.

Very well done on going out there and keep running till the end!!! I had plenty runs like that, but I flet better every single time (maybe not good or great, but always better) than before run. I hope you had similar effect :) Keep pushing, you are so close to the graduation! You can do it!
