I fancied a change of scenery this morning to see if it would help. I seem to spend the first 18 minutes of the run thinking I can’t do it. Iv never stopped so I guess I’m not doin too bad but I’m also not enjoying it as much as I was. Any tips?

Change your music, do some intervals, hope you find the fun in running soon
I really want to jump in that lake! 💦
So did I when I’d finished! 😂
Where is it? If you don’t mind me asking? I’ll bring my armbands. See you there 🤣
Definitely vary the routes if you can so it doesn't become routine. Add a hilly bit if your normal route is flat. Choose a flatter route if your normal route is hilly.
I completed Week 8 yesterday. I have been running a different route on each day since Week 7.
If you're listening to music, try a different mix of music, or maybe spoken word or music podcasts.
I definitely need a new playlist Iv had the same one since I started 😂 Iv been goin the same route everyday until today. You are so close to the end! Good luck for week 9
I have found W8 the hardest too, I re-did both run 1 & 2 as couldn't do them first time out and this morning was aiming to do R3 but the wind is so strong it was a nightmare so still to do it! Not giving up though, not putting pressure on myself either, 8 weeks ago I couldn't run 5 x 1 minute sessions!! You will get there, as will I, just be kind to yourself
Not what you're looking for?
