Right... I'm posting this here now to motivate myself to run tomorrow! I had 2 difficult runs last week, and being a bit busy and a bit demotivated have not managed to get out since.

I decided not to go today, but to make sure I'm getting plenty of water all day, and get back out there tomorrow πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Just posting here so I cant get out of it! So do all feel free to ask me tomorrow how it went!! 😁

You don’t need us Parky - look how far you’ve come and you did it all on your own! But you’d better believe we’ll be watching tomorrow!

Parky those 2 difficult runs last week were strength builders for doing 8:2 tomorrow! Are you prepared with your favourite music on a playlist? Start your run very slowly concentrating on the words of your music to get you through the toxic 10... after the delightful halfway bell start to take in your surroundings & enjoy being out and about...keep a steady slow pace... then those last couple of minutes belt it out with anything you have left in the tank!! You can definitely do this because

A) you have already done it!! Run πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ πŸ‘

B) your previous runs have made you stronger πŸ’ͺ πŸ”₯

C) we are all waiting at the finish line!! 🀣 πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§

Go for it .... I’ll be here cheering you on. My trick is to lay all the running gear out and just put it on when I get home. It works every time. I always start the podcast with well I’ll see how I get on then once i start there’s no stopping me. I found some really good podcasts today also on iPlayer by runners world and run pod. After listening to a few I’m itching to get out there. Have fun x

Well done! I can't wait to get there (just about to start wk5 and now have a cold, so have to pause for a bit and am gutted)

Good idea to have people hold you accountable, sometimes the only reason I go out is because of comments on here!
