W2 R3 done! On to week 3 ๐Ÿคฉ

โ€ข20 Replies

I dragged my boyfriend along today because my confidence was knocked after my struggle last time and that womanโ€™s stupid comment on my last post (now deleted). I also had a very down day anyway so getting out was a debate and thank god I did! I kept my pace more steady this time but probably wasnโ€™t going slow enough, especially to head into the third week but thatโ€™s ok Iโ€™ll try going even slower next run ๐Ÿ™‚. I didnโ€™t use strava as this isnโ€™t about the pace, itโ€™s about the journey and programme. Feeling much happier now. Thanks for everyoneโ€™s advice getting me this far โค๏ธ. Hopefully my trainers will be here for week 3 ๐Ÿ˜ xxxx

Well done! Especially given the heat today.


Well done for completing week 2 !

It's been a hot one today !

Hmm .... You had a stupid comment on a post ?

I didn't see it but don't let it get to you !

Keep up the good work !

I'm sorry to hear someone said something negative to you, thats not like this forum

But all credit to you for conquering today and completing your week, well done

Thank you so much! You also enjoy your weekend ๐Ÿ˜Ž x

Fantastic well done for putting the gremlin in its box lol..and what a great boyfriend you have for supporting you!

If you managed to keep a pace throughout that maybe the one for you. See how week 3 goes.

Ooo how to the gait analysis go?

Thats the first negative comment I have seen on here. She must have been having a bad day but she had no right to project that on you so good for you for putting it out of your head and carrying on.......bring on week 3...you got this ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘

I agree she must have been but nevermind now! Thank you for all your kind words โ˜บ๏ธ gait analysis was cool! I canโ€™t believe I ran in a shop on a treadmill for the world to see ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. I fall into the supination category so neutral shoes it is for me ๐Ÿ‘. Have you had yours done yet? Xx

Hiya Sally. I start W3 tomorrow ๐Ÿฅบ. We're in it together. Stay strong and good luck ๐Ÿ˜Š

sally1993 in reply to mattymoo33

Yay let me know how it goes!! Good luck to you too ๐Ÿ˜ฌ x


Well done ๐Ÿ™Œ Iโ€™m so sorry you got a confidence-sapping post ๐Ÿ˜ข Not what this forum is for at all. I havenโ€™t used anything other than the app during this whole challenge. Maybe one day Iโ€™ll be interested in how far I go but for me it was all about completing each run as set. Youโ€™re doing brilliantly!

sally1993 in reply to SJ60

Thank you! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™‚


Well done you - mental and physical challenge Iโ€™ve found.

Didnโ€™t see negative response to post but so pleased you are sticking with the programme.

How lovely that you had a running supporter but always remember thereโ€™s us too.

Iโ€™ve only ever had useful advice, encouragement and tips from the guys on here so you have been really unlucky.

So glad youโ€™ve risen above it and continued.

Keep going - you are amazing for doing this.

Definitely something to be proud of ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

sally1993 in reply to 61Lady

Thank you so much! Lovely words and youโ€™re right I do have you guys! Xx

Oh Iโ€™m sorry you had a bad experience on this site, usually I have lots of positivity and itโ€™s so annoying that a bad apple on here got you

Down x well done for going forward anyway and not letting that person stop your amazing effort! Good luck and happy running!


Well done for completing Week 2!!! Youโ€™ve got this in the bag!!!

Yesterday was a very hot ๐Ÿฅต day so well done for getting out and completing W2R3!!!


Well done you.

Remember its one run at A time. Every new one is an achievement.

This Journey is all about you not Anyone else

Keep it up you are doing fab๐Ÿ˜

Enjoy the new trainers x

Well done! So glad you got out and great you had your boyfriend with you. I did this run much slower too and found it made a massive difference to my stamina and breathing! We are on to week 3!!! (Terrified!). Let us know how the trainers go. Iโ€™ve got very old ones so probably will be upgrading too! ๐Ÿ˜€

sally1993 in reply to Moomin63

I know week three already! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ how is it moving so fast ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ x


So sorry if you had problems, Sally1993. But glad you were able to get out and run today. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฃ
