So I am up to W7 R1. Found it a bit harder than normal and actually thought it might end up being a ‘practice run’ 😜 but I managed to slow right down and get through that initial 10 minutes, which is always the hardest part for me. Reading through posts tonight has been so helpful.......I definitely need to drink more and actually do the strength and flex (as opposed to just downloading the podcasts 🙈🤣🤣)

Well done on the run. And although it is good to download podcasts in preparation it is kind of essential to then press play, good luck, you'll benefit from doing the exercises.
👍😊👏 you are really thinking like a runner!! Good run. Well done!!!
Excellent job. The strength & flex exercises definitely help and I know what you mean about that horrible first 10 minutes, once that’s over you can do anything! 👍
You did the best thing possible by slowing down so not to stop . Determination is a great thing to have . Well done you 😊
We all say slow down and drink more water and we were all once people who ran too fast got puffed out too much and had heavy legs from not drinking enough, you are doing great, be proud
I finished my W7 runs and apart from the initial email 10 mins what I find more challenging is sometimes the boredom. My mind keeps reminding me of the remaining mins which goes against my good spirits. I do my runs in a park and don't want to play music to be environment aware
Or check out bone conducting earphones, they don't need to be top of the range, they don't cover or go in your ears so provided you don't have the volume too loud you still hear everything around you. I use them as I need to hear traffic on country lanes, and I like to hear the birds and the wind in the trees but the music acts like a distraction for the rest of my mind 👍🏻😁
Well done on getting out there and yeah I am a bit of a Lizard myself and if I don't hydrate properly the run is always harder. Keep Hydrated and keep going your almost there now. 🏃♀️🏃♀️
Well done you 🎉
You know what you need to do next, get to it fellow runner 👍🏃♀️
