Week 9 Run 3 - Feel like Rocky !

Morning all,

Woke up this morning feeling a bit heady (other half had a cold so think he decided to share a few germs with me) so I thought don’t feel 100% let’s have breakfast and take it easy for a few hours. No way was I going to miss my “graduation run” today and drank lots of water and off I went at 10am.

Amazing ! Struggled ! Lept for Joy ! Proud ! This explains my run today and I beat my PB as reached 5.05km (did include 5 min warm up and down) but over the moon - the best bit was I finished my run with a sprint listening to the Rocky soundtrack ! 🥊

A HUGE thank you to each and every one of you who have commented, inspired and motivated me to do this, without you not sure whether I would have got to the end.

I will continue to run 3 times a week and will continue to be on here getting tips etc....Good luck to all of you throughout this journey, be positive and inspired - you can do this !

My favourite song 'no easy way out ' and it just so happens that I love all the rocky films been watching then since I was a young girl 😂

Thanks so much MB - isn’t it a great feeling and you have motivated me throughout whilst reading your posts which made me get up and get out. I’m just going to run 3 times a week for a few weeks and then see what’s next...maybe shorter quicker runs once a week to mix it up a bit to get that heart rate going 🏃‍♀️ Will keep an eye on your posts to which will give me inspiration !

Thank you for your slow running advice - it has changed the way I run and appreciate all your tips and comments to help me along the way 🏃‍♀️

DiscoRunnerGraduate in reply to RunRunRun13

I’m so glad it helped! I think it’s a really good way to start, I’m certainly sticking with it for now, and maybe always will run this way. But it’s a great foundation and after consolidation you can choose to stick to it or add more speed generally or for one run? I’m doing 2x30 now with 1 at 45, soon upping that to 50 - but can only add the duration because I’m going slowly! Good luck with the consolidation runs - took me about 6 weeks before I was ready to change things! Perhaps I’m just very slow 🤣🐌🤣

Thank you for the advice, yes I agree was going to just carry on as I am 3 x 30 for few weeks and see how I go...no injuries so far and would like to keep it that way 🏃‍♀️

Bam bam budda bam badda bam budda bam. Dada da dada da 🤦🏻‍♂️. Just well done!! Haha. I’m too old to try that. 😂

Ha ha ! Thanks Dave...this did make me chuckle as I was trying to work out if it’s a rocky song ? 🤔 Had a look at Adrienne yoga on You Tube after reading your post...going to give it a go (hopefully I can get up afterwards) 😂

in reply to RunRunRun13

I tried her stuff once. Felt as though I was dying. 😂. Those “yogis”. Blooming brilliant they are. She makes everything look super easy. Let me know when you do it. I will have a go at the same time 😂👍

in reply to RunRunRun13

Did you ever try the adrienne yoga? Still need to get my act in to gear and try some.

RunRunRun13Graduate in reply to

Yes I did ! She’s definitely very stretchy and found out I’m not 😂 get your yoga gear on Dave and give it a go !

in reply to RunRunRun13

Got the spandex at the ready!! 😂😂

RunRunRun13Graduate in reply to

Ha ha ! Going to do some more tomorrow - she’s very good albeit slightly showing off 😂 (spandex should be banned)😂

in reply to RunRunRun13

Yeah. I did a little bit one. Hard work!! Yeah, it should. I wouldn’t envy anyone seeing me in anything like that 😂😳

Many congratulations on your graduation fellow runner.

Thanks so much, yes it came out as a full blown cold later in the day but maybe the run helped it show itself...so few days rest for me. Good luck with all your runs too and I will stay on this forum as it’s great for tips and advice etc 🏃‍♀️
