Another lovely day for running. I went out just before lunchtime, and it was lovely and sunny. The run went pretty much like the first one on Monday - tough for the first 8 to 10 minutes and then seemed to find a rhythm. Really enjoyed it 😊

Spotify on shuffle, favourite of a bad bunch Blurred lines which kicked in towards the end of the first 5 minute run, just when I needed it! Not very PC I know, but it’s a good tooone 😜

Well done! You’re doing SO well!

What a beautiful view and a lovely place to run. It usually takes me 12 to 15 minutes to find my rhythm, I blame my short stature on that.

I haven’t counted the 5 min warm up walk, so could be around the same if you do.....

Great work, lovely photo

Well done Wenderwoo, you are smashing your way through this! I'm sure that the scenery helps, but well done you!

We seem to be running the same runs on the same days of the week :) always nice to read your posts! I'm away out tonight and it's good once I get into the rhythm of it. Well done and lovely picture

What a beautiful picture. How could you not enjoy running there :-)

Well done! You're an inspiration!

Fantastic progress, well done! What a gorgeous place to run. The first 5-10 minutes are always a bit tough. It’s called the ‘toxic ten’ where it feels your legs and brain are having an argument about what the hell is going on! Then your body adjusts and you find your nice pace. You can probably find a post about it on here somewhere but it’s quite common. I do my times tables to force me to focus on something else! Good luck with the next run, you’re doing brilliantly x

Toxic ten, first time I’ve heard that, will have to google. And times table reciting is a great idea......if I can remember them!

Beautiful place to run, you are doing amazingly and able to take wonderful photos too
