I can't believe I've just run for 25 mins and even managed to speed up a little for the last minute, as instructed by Michael. At the start I thought I was going to struggle due to the cold: it was too feisty to run this morning and half way through my warm up walk I could barely feel my fingers- and that's with gloves on! - and was wishing I'd worn a thermal top. However I persevered, helped by the gorgeous (if wintery) light and the herons, geese, oystercatchers and curlews I spotted. I wasn't too cold in the end, and I made it -even though it felt like my 5 minute cool down walk was a 2 minute stagger followed by a 3 minute walk!! I see the app has now officially classed me as a runner! A very slow jogger maybe... I definitely don't feel like a runner yet but I do feel much fitter and can't believe I'm managing this! Even in my fittest days, playing lots of sport, I never had the stamina to run continuously for any length of time at all.

Great run. You got this now. Joggers are runners too BTW 😂. Enjoy week 7.
I know joggers are runners too, but it doesn't feel like I'm a "real" runner yet. Hopefully that will come!
It’s all subjective... put me next to Sir Mo and I’m a jogger... but I can outrun the 4 year olds at junior parkrun 😂😂😂
So what constitutes a ‘real’ runner?! I think someone who laces up their running shoes and goes out in sub-zero temperatures qualifies, don’t you?! 🙃
I’m not a real runner???
It’s ONE definition, UNM, but not the only one!
Well done! I felt much the same this evening doing the same run, I'm impressed you managed to speed up at the end 👍 I'm going to see if I can do that next time...!
Not what you're looking for?
