That was a hot one this morning ... Will I ever get to the point where I'm not just running until I'm told I can stop?!? I'm definitely not there yet...

Well done, it’s a great feeling isn’t it! I’m on consolidation run 9 now and push myself every time to get to 5k, it’s hard though, hopefully it will start to get easier soon!🀞

LME1707Graduate in reply to Brum2cv

Amazing feeling 😁 agreed it was sooooo hard! Definitely wasn’t any easier lol. I really had to push thoughts aside to not just stop at the 30 minutes and to keep going. Hoping it will get easier over time 🀞🀞 well done for doing your consolidation runs!! Bet your feeling amazing

Agreed. I am on week 8 at the moment and having to take it easy as my knee seems to hate running ( I always said running is bad for knees and would never do it ha ha). Can’t wait to reach the end. Have signed up to a virtual 5k Doggie Dash as I do all my runs off road with my little Cockapoo (off lead of course!). I basically just want a medal for this gargantuan achievement. They have loads to choose from if you are interested. Here is the link virtualracinguk.co.uk/produ...

I know!! Just take it easy, you know your body best so if you need an extra days rest then take it. I have had a few niggles in my ankle along the way so have taken an extra day here and there. That sounds amazing!! I will have a look :D I need something else to work towards now. Doggie Dash sounds interesting haha!!

It’s getting there slowly. I went for a walk yesterday and a slightly longer one today so if all goes well I’m hoping to try a little run this week, not sure where I’ll start, I’ll maybe try w6r1 and see how I feel after that 🀞
