Into Week 8 πŸ˜€! Run 1 βœ…

β€’19 Replies

Quite a simple run this morning. I noticed the step up to the extra 3 minutes but slowed my pace and just kept going. I always finish my run on this route on a slight incline but I guess that will pay off in the long run.

I switched to Jo Whiley today and really enjoyed listening to her encouraging me. It's reassuring to know that her comments come from experience. I think I'll keep her running with me to the end of the 9 weeks now. πŸ˜ŠπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Happy running everyone!

I can see that long elusive week 9 run 3 on the horizon! Hope I haven't just jinxed myself πŸ™„πŸ€žπŸΌπŸ€!

Noooo you'll be fine, I stuck with Michael all the way through, but I know other people have switched


Have been laid low with stomach bug.. so no running at the moment apart from to the loo! Well done you and I agree about Jo! Was briefly unfaithful to her but have switched back,

Poor you! Rest up, the runs will wait.

I really liked Jo. I wished I'd tried her as a coach earlier, but better late than never.


I found W8 tough, but then I find most runs tough. But W9 was a good week for some reason - maybe the excitement factor 😁

Well done, you’ve got this, and it’s not long now πŸ‘πŸ˜

Thank you 😊

Delly-dotGraduate in reply to Wenderwoo

Thanks Wenderwoo. I found last week hard going. Today's run was quite uneventful by comparison, I just plugged away at it. 😊


Great running Delly-dot, wk9 and graduation just around the corner. Good luck and well done 😊😊

Thank you 😊. That elusive week 9 that I’ve been hankering after for so long! Nearly there!

Wk9 was actually my best week of running


Well done Delly-dot, impressive that you adjusted your pace to keep going.

Keep up the great work, you’ve got this πŸ‘πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ’ͺπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Thank you. It’s great to be in week 8!


Wow, Delly-dot, so close to finish. Brilliant. Sound like you are going to smash it. Happy running πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘

Thank you Nilsam. Finishing line in view!

Definitely. Enjoy next week. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘

Sounding positive for W8! Here’s to those lighter nights and mornings now spring is around the corner.

I’ve had Jo’s voice all the way through. I find her tone is really encouraging. πŸŒΈπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸŒΈ


I listen to Jo Whiley - she is so calm and measured - I don't know what the others are like, but I couldn't stand someone with a shouty voice!

Jo Whiley was great and I stuck with her right through to graduation after this run πŸ˜ŠπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ.
