Week 5 Run 3 - Only gone and done it !!!

Was trying not to be apprehensive about this run but I was, having to run 20 mins non stop but up at 6.30 dressed and out the door. Stretches and few breathing exercises before I started (thank you to this site for the tips). First 5 mins of the run I found the most difficult and then started thinking of what I was going to do for the rest of the day, didn’t have the music too fast as I slowed my pace down (sure a snail actually past me) 🐌 (pace was 8.50 km) but do you know it doesn’t matter because when it had finished I felt I could of carried on. I have posted this for other people about to do this run that it CAN be done whether that be first time or repeating the run and be PROUD of your achievements. Go slow and steady.

Congratulations!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ I did the same run this morning too and at exactly the same pace! If you’re not walking, it means you’re running, so don’t worry about the pace 😁

Congratulations to you too ! We smashed it ! I downloaded the Strava app to see pace etc just so I can see if improvements etc but just completing the run made me punch the air and a huge smile. πŸŽ‰ Good luck for Week 6 ! πŸŽ‰

Well done. I'm one run behind you. Wonder if your pace was 8.5 km per hour. Or 8.5 minutes per km?

Thank you and good luck to you too. Positive mind to enjoy it helped me too. The pace was from a Strava app which to be honest not sure what I’m looking at but it said that was my average pace πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Not sure, but if it's minutes per km that's the same as me. Well done. I'll keep watching your progress to spur me on
