When do the Coaches call you a Runner? Week 6 Run 2 DONE!


What Run so the coaches call you a runner? I’m holding out for this and using it as my motivation!

Week 6 Run 2 done. Sun was glorious all morning and as soon as I stepped out of the door I could feel some raindrops starting! Typical as I has a light jacket on. I do t mins getting wet but I don’t fancy my red dye running and making me look like Carrie! 🤣

Both runs completed and the 2nd 10 minute run started to ache towards the last 2 minutes. Took mental willpower to push on through.

I also “pang” a lot towards the end, quite audibly )or so I think£. Is this a sign to slow it down more? I’m conscious that stones are overtaking me!

Plus at the end of the run, during my cool down walk I find the endorphins take over and I find myself practically dancing and grooving along to my playlist. Well until I reach the main road and I have to tone it down a little!

If you're using that for motivation then it's W9R3 😂

Well done in the tricky intervals... you got this now.

Your coach may say something at the end of your next run

Well done on completing Week 6 - woohoo! Good Luck with week 7!

Thank you - I shall listen out for those words on my next run.


They do say that at the end of week 6 when the walking intervals end but really, if you run regularly you’re a runner.
