Week 7 Run 2 - Early morning run !

Morning all,

Out very early but this is why I love the mornings ! Was quite a hard run today and started to struggle but thought “can’t let my virtual running buddies down” so gave myself a talking to and kept going, then the rain started to join me (but was actually quite refreshing). I think this has been my hardest run so far but that may have been because of the extra pancakes last night !!!! 🥞 😂 Good luck to all of you running today 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️

What a beautiful place to run ! You've done well today and you're right - the thought of posting on here that you didn't quite manage it helps keep up that motivation. I'm sure I'd have quit before now without it x

Thank you, I’m very lucky to be able to run there and see the wildlife waking up. I alter my route on each run so I don’t get bored, agree that having people on here spur you on gives you the kick up the butt...well done on your run too today 🏃‍♀️👊🏃‍♀️

Thank you Jill...it really helps with having this forum to keep the motivation going. Of course I couldn’t say “no” to pancake day 😁

We all have those horrid nasty runs from time to time. Well done for getting it done though! I love early morning runs. Just struggle with dragging myself out of bed sometimes.

Thanks Dave, completely agree the worst part is getting out of the bed, then there is the stretching, water, clothes, faffing with all the apps/music etc. By the time I get out I’m exhausted 😂 Good luck for your next one...my alarm is set for Friday 😳

😂 yeah. I set mine for 6 usually. By 6:20 I’m out the door. Not sure why it takes so long!! Good luck for Friday. I’m sure you’ll do brilliantly!!

Thank you ! Now think I am out the door quicker than you in the morning (plus you only wear shorts) I have to put all the running gear on, so no excuse Dave for taking so long 😂 Good luck for your next run 🏃‍♂️

Thank you, my favourite part of the run (the end when I can take a pic). Glad I wasnt the only one partial to a pancake (or two) 😄🥞
