Week 7 complete. That was quite a tough week, if felt a bit relentless. Tonight is the least motivated I've felt to go for a run. But I did it and actually it was the best run of the week! Found it surprisingly easy considering I felt like I had no energy before going. The app is obviously doing what it's supposed to. Roll on week 8!

Well done on your run Sarah2706 you are smashing this running game 👏👏👏👏👏👍
Well done ,I finished the same run earlier as well
Well done. I'm choosing either early morning or early evening at the minute as it's been so warm. Don't know why I've had such little energy this week.
Yes I was out at 830 this morning ,not going out in the heat to run .the coming week seems to cooling down so all good for week 8
Well done on your run Sarah. It is surprising how a run that we think we are not up for when we set out, turns out to be one of the best runs. You're nearly there!
Fantastic news, Sarah2706. That means you will always know if you are feeling down and don't want to run...it will change the way you feel. Well done. 😎👍
Well done Sarah trust the app just like you've done so far it'll take you all the way to your badge 👍🙂
Great that you got through this run, even though you weren’t that motivated initially.
Well done, and keep up the great work 👍
Well done. The trick now is to remember that experience the next time you don't feel like going out. 👍
Well done! I went out feeling motivated for this run but actually found it harder going than runs 1&2! Strangely though, did W8 R1 yesterday and could have kept going at the end! I think we just have good days and bad days and have to trust that overall the plan works 😄
Well done, mind over matter!! I think that feeling exhausted and lethargic is a sign of the times for a lot of us right now - psychological response to the situation, but good to get out and overcome it with physical activity!
Hi, Congratulations for not giving into your thoughts.
I found W7 a challenge too therefore, I decided W8 would be my challenge R1 I decided - R2 i will get at close to 5k as I could , (I’m 69). It was a great challenge for myself jogging at my own pace.
Then on R3 , I clocked 3 miles ( just short of 5K). Tomorrow W9.... I have already set my intentions- to jog/run 1,2 3 - 5k , all three , no matter what my time is. So , you will love W8 and W9 . You could set you own challenge and pace too. Hope to hear of your success
I’ve just done wk7 2nd run and found it hard but really enjoying exploring my local area.
I wonder how your week 8 is going? Another week down so well done. You are so near the end!
You are prepared and you have miles in the legs now. Good luck!
I'm on run 3 of week 8 later today, looks like I won't avoid the rain so I've resigned myself to just getting soaked. On the upside I shouldn't bump into too many people. Found run 2 really hard and it was completely my own fault for putting pressure on myself because there were people about. I rarely see anyone round here, it's a quiet little village but everyone is out currently and for some odd reason I feel the need to up my pace so I don't look so slow. I tell myself I'm runnimg for me and no one else and yet I still do it! 🤷♀️
