I’ve just ran W9R2 πŸ˜‰

I’ve not had the best day today I’ve been letting things get into my head I first went to the gym as it was heavy rain and tried my new trainers on the running track inside so I was going to do my run in there but I just couldn’t do it not because I was tired I just was maybe just over 10mins in and I just stopped and then I was in a really bad mood as I failed but not failed if you know what I mean it was so monotonous running around a track so I called it a day. But I sorted my head out and got my arse outside which is so much better I ran W9R2 I didn’t get as far as the other day but I think I must of fatigued myself a little by doing the run at the gym so now I’ve done it I feel so much better so I’m going to the gym tomorrow and then do my graduation run on Sunday I’m going to hydrate more and I’m going to absolutely smash it πŸ˜‰πŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸŽ“πŸŒŸπŸπŸ˜€

High Five for trying Kevtrev. I'm not surprised you didn't quite make it with the second effort - I think when you have a not so good day it's best to just put it down to experience, have a day's rest as usual and then off you go as if the bad day never happened and you'll smash it. You can do it, you will do it and you will be so pleased. Let us all know how you get on, and smile - it helps!

That's the way to go Kev, get your all pumped up for your graduation run, but be careful not to go too fast.

Today my daughter Gillian printed out my barcode for any parkruns I may wish to run.

I just completed the Stepping stones podcasts with Laura and have marked in the calendar Saturday 13th July for my first full 5k Parkrun.

Until then I will train using that metromone pacer app with various steps per minute to run the 5k distance.

Well done for pushing through later on Kevtrev. We've all had those bad days and they are valuable to look back on once you push through them. Hope you smash it on Sunday. Best of luck!

Thank you Decker that’s my plan lots of sleep lots of water and a few beers the night before but only a few as I’ve cut that down as well I can’t cut it right out as there are to many nice micro brewery’s and craft beers about not too. I’m absolutely going to smash it on Sunday with a bit of hope the wind won’t and the rain won’t be too much not like I don’t like it I do it keeps me cool and I seem to run better with a bit of rain in my face happy running fella πŸ˜‰πŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸπŸ‘πŸŒŸπŸ†πŸŽ“

Haha just remember the beers will really counteract the water plan 😁 You could always do the beers after you smash it. Or just play the odds πŸ™‚ Either way good luck my friend!

I’m going to prepare myself for Sunday and I’m going to smash it and thank you for your kind words πŸ˜‰πŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸŽ“πŸπŸ†

Thank you I’m going prepare and be ready for Sunday not like yesterday I did it but it wasn’t my best but saying that I did more than I should on the Friday as I already ran for 10 or more minutes as I didn’t look at the time when I started who knows how long I paused the app by mistake for how long not sure I was running? Anyway that’s one of life’s things now I ran properly I felt so much better outside inside running never again πŸ˜‰
