Found this run quite difficult as I had 2 days rest! But half way through it was great! Ankle gave way but carried on! I’m getting there! Will do the jumping n running to rocky theme when Iv reaches my goal!! 👍😁

It was difficult but you did it chewy keep that belief and use it on your next run. Watch those ankles you'll need them more in the later weeks 👍🙂

I badly twisted my ankle years ago and always gives way when it’s stiff or cold, Iv got a foot brace so I should’ve put it on really, so my own fault

Ouch I went over on mine going after a squash ball gr4rrr yikes it hurt and the pretty colours and swelling 😬

Still wary of it now years later if ever I have a quick knock on the court

Probably better to have broken it than a bad sprain! They say a break heals better than a sprain

Yes but didn’t think it would last for 25 years!!

Well done. Keep going.

Thankyou

Just completed W2R1 myself...was surprised that that extra 30 secs on each run really was noticeable by the end...tired now...but happy I did it...well done - and look after your ankle- we can do it!!!

I thought that too! But not as many runs 👍😁

Well done.

Two days rest won't have made it more difficult.......it takes much longer than that to lose condition.

Take care of your ankle, they can take a long time to heal.
