Ok so rest up and stretch those muscles dying-to-change, and please don't over think the future runs, you've found the knack for getting through them as it suits you 👍.

One run at a time 🙂

You still feel like you’re going to die, it just takes a little longer - you’ve got a bit further ! 😁

oh! but they say you start to enjoy it...:-) ?

You do start to enjoy it- it’s a twisted type of enjoyment- it comes when it’s done!
