W6R3: Blimey that was hard work

Running (shuffling) a couple of days behind schedule due to extra work commitments and not feeling 100% yesterday. Ran on the canal again so it was flat, but on a Sunday it’s busy with MUCH fitter and faster runners making me feel lardy and slow. I wore too many layers too so overheated: the last 5mins was really tough. Despite what the app says I really didn’t feel like a runner today but pleased I made myself go and do it... now, where’s the chocolate??!!

This bloke overtook me TWICE the other week, which was really rubbing it in ! The first time I felt deeply humiliated, but the second time I found myself watching his style. I learned a bit about rhythm which is really helping me on. Every day a school day, as they say 😄

Another one in the bag Molly, well done 👍.

Put it to bed, (just like I had to with the same run!)... and enjoy Wk 7 💪..

And those fitter are faster runners had to start somewhere remember...

Your doing just great 👏

Onwards and upwards 🙌

Well done, I did it on Saturday and found it very hard, I keep wondering when I will start to enjoy it.

Wk7R1 tomorrow for me

The runners that passed you were where you are right now at some point. Don’t let them worry you... let them inspire you. Great job.
