W7 R1 plod


Ran today after a very busy day at work which involved walking up and down six flights of stairs several times. So to say I didn't feel like it was an understatement. I promised myself that I could stop at the halfway point, then I promised myself I would stop after the track I was listening to finished. I got myself to twenty minutes and thought- well I might as well carry on to the end. And I made it, even taking it a bit faster for the last couple of minutes!

I'm sure playing mind games with myself got me through to the end .

Great exercise on those stairs.. I use that as part of my exercise regime, sometimes... running up and down :)

Huge well done you!

Yes I agree, when I tire I just run the two or three yards in front of me, anyone can run two or three yards. Works for me.

Good Luck

Makes sense to me! It's better than concentrating on how far you've got left to go!


Excellent effort well done. I had to stop after w7r1 cos my leg has really started to hurt right at the break point. Which is concerning. I did a 15 min then a 20 min and will see how it goes tomorrow but feel gutted to have to make up my own week and get behind on the programme!

I will try your mind games and see if they help! 🤗
