Week 9 run 1 done! πŸ˜…

I did my run just after 11am, I ran for 30 minutes, picked up the pace in the last 2 minutes but for at least 15 mins it was a mental battle as part of me was saying "stop it's too hot" (which it was) and "stop you're hungover" (which I am), however my legs kept going and I eventually won the mental battle!

For run 2 I'm going to run when it's much cooler and not drink the night before.

Hope you're all wellπŸ‘πŸ€πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘ŸπŸ‘

Congratulations on completing run 1 of week 9, only two more runs until you graduate.

On Monday if that's the day you are going to run, run 2 of week 9, try getting out for your run ASAP as for the next few days the weather is to be warm and humid, even at 7 am it could be warm, but not as hot as later in the day.

Drink plenty of water on Sunday to keep hydrated and some just before you run. πŸƒπŸΎ

Hi Al thanks mate, your support and from others on this site has been very helpful.

Can't believe I made it to week 9!

Will leave the house at 8am on Monday.

As always thanks for the advice πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸƒπŸ€

Good effort and take it easy on yourself next time!

If you can do it hungover in the heat you've got it in the bag :D

I assume by your name that you come from London and also do your training in London Town.

Hi Al I actually come from Dublin but yes I live in East London. Cockney mick is old slang for people of Irish heritage living in East London.

Brilliant! Well done you. I've found that a side effect of this running thing has been less wine intake!

Cockneymick
CockneymickGraduate in reply to JeanneMary

Thanks I've also reduced beer intake but didn't last night! I'll have to plan better going forward

Congrats, I struggled today too thought it was humid, did it at 7 am so not too hot and I wasnt hung over.

Thank you! I recommend you drink plenty of water the night before and run early before it gets hot πŸ‘πŸ€πŸƒ

This made me chuckle. You managed to run hung over....that's pretty impressive you won the battle lol!

Well done, hope it was a good night πŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ‘

Was a great night thanks but I'll be having an earlier night tonight before run 2!

Battle was hard but eventually won, hopefully not as hard tomo.

How are your runs going? All good I hope? πŸ€πŸ‘πŸƒ

Lol don't blame you!

My runs are going really well thanks. Did a completely different run up in Cumbria but still managed it. It's starting to feel a lot more comfortable now.....famous last words πŸ™ˆπŸ€£

Good luck for your run tomorrow πŸ€

Got it done! Funny how that extra 2 min felt quite long #allinthemind

Excited to get all 3 of the 30 min runs in the bag now!

Wow, what a slog and what a trooper! 😁 Well done, I would definitely have wimped out of that run with a hangover! πŸ₯΄You’re next one’ll be a breeze after that! πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈ

Yes and as the famous saying goes 'never again'. Did run 2 tonight in more favourable conditions (internally and externally!) and went well. Thanks for your encouragement πŸ‘πŸ€πŸƒ
