Into Week 8 πŸ˜€! Run 1 βœ…

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!

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˜

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

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!
