Week 6 run 1 - slow but done ✅

I was feeling absolutely awful before going out today, think I had built up so much to the 20 minutes last week it was hard to get my enthusiasm up. Forced myself out though and it wasn’t too bad. I think I was even slower than usual and did find the last run a bit of a slog but onwards I go. School holiday are upsetting my routine a bit, didn’t realise how much of a habit I was getting into until I’ve had to change things a bit.

Just relax into these longer runs... start slow, stay slow... you will be just fine:)

Congratulations Bumblebetty on completing run 1 of week 6 despite you feeling absolutely awful, well done, yes the school hols can change the routine a good bit.

Onwards and upwards to run 2 of week 6 which is the last one with interval walks and runs then run 3 which after you have complete that 25 minute run you are officially a runner. 😊 🏃

Still ploughing on :). Thanks for checking on me. I will do first run of week 8 tomorrow. Now I’ve started listening to podcasts instead of music I’m finding the longer runs more enjoyable. I’m finding my legs are a lot achier in between runs tho and I don’t deal with the heat very well so have to see how that goes. How are you doing?

Well done Bumblebetty! Keep on ploughing on!

Excellent, glad to hear your still ploughing on. The heat is a bit of a killer isn’t it. I’m going to try a bit later tomorrow after the sun goes down. I have struggled with w7 but my recovery is a lot quicker now. I’m also starting w8 tomorrow too. Good luck with it BB, and you with your w6:2 OGR. Glad your calf is feeling better but take it easy, speed is not important. Enjoy your Easter weekends. 🐣😁

How are you getting Rosiepug? I’m hoping my calf muscle is sufficiently ok again to restart tomorrow with w6r2...
