Yay πŸ˜ƒ First rainy 🌧 run, completed!! πŸ˜€

β€’6 Replies

Good morning all!

Well after dreading W3R1 I’ve only gone & done it!

W3R1 in the pi**ing down rain 🌧 & do I feel great? Yes I do! Woohoo πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ for some reason the rain seamed to have a calming affect on me πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜Œ

I also listened to all the advice given & ran the Japanese slow jog which for me is an absolutely brilliant run style, I was not out of breathe once & as I’ve said previously that was a big thing for me! so I’m super impressed with that & I actually really enjoyed that run although it was longer. πŸ˜ƒ

I relaxed my shoulders and arms as someone suggested to a point where I was only focused on the 80’s playlist I was singing 🎢along to.

Secondly my coach Laura told me to visualise I was running along side a high hedge with a person stood on the other side & that person shouldn’t be able to tell if I’m running or walking as I go by!! Well as that was said I was into my 3 min run when my daughter & son drove by cheered me on & when I got back home they both to me said I look like I’m gliding when I run, I make it look effortless πŸ€”πŸ˜ so I’m chuffed to bits at that!!

So to finish thanks for all the advice points this week I’ve listened & applied them this morning.

Good run for you today PolkaDot88, week 3 of C25K is a popular week for graduates of C25K who have been off running for a few months, I restarted running again with that week, not week 1 after a short winter break from running in March this year, onwards and upwards to run 2 of week 3. πŸ˜ŠπŸƒ
