:-D I've only gone and finished week7

OH YES, and not only that but when Laura said if I feel OK maybe speed up a little, I actually sprinted for the last minutes and a bit. Or at least it felt like sprinting to me. LOL

Oh and what a fabulous morning for jogging. I'm so glad I chickened out yesterday and waited for today, because it was grey and freezing and blowing a gale here yesterday. Sunny, cool and almost no wind today. :-)

So on to week 8 on Monday. Slow and steady, slow and steady. :-)

Happy jogging people. :-)

  • Snap!! I have also finished W7 this morning. It was also lovely here in not so sunny Belgium. It makes such a difference when there is almost no wind. Really enjoyed my run this morning and roll on Monday for W8 ;) We almost have that lovely shiny badge :-D

  • Congratulations ... have added greeting to you both below :D

  • Well done to you too. I am a bit nervous about week 8 I must admit, because I did struggle with week 7. But once again I will give it my best shot. :-)

    Good luck.

  • Well done BOTH of you! It is a lovely day today - lets hope spring might decide to stay a while. All the very best for the last weeks ahead - look forward to hearing about graduation runs soon. Cheers Linda :D

  • Thanks Linda....I'll keep you posted :)

  • Thank you. I certainly hope the nice weather decides to stick a round for a while too. :-)

  • Fantastic! How nice that it was a lovely morning as well - and well done for that last sprint at the end :)

  • Thanks :-) Make running a much more pleasant experience when the weather is with you. :-)

  • Well done! Respect since I struggled with w7r1 yesterday. Much worse than w6r3!!

  • I struggled with week 7, I only managed 18 mins of run1 and 2 and 20 mins of run3. So I repeat the week, but I didn't put any pressure on myself I listen to the 20 minute podcast and just set out to do anything over 20 minutes and it worked for me. I did 26 minutes, run2 did 25 minutes and then on the 3rd run I listend to the week 7 podcast and finished the week. :-) Try not to think too much about it. let your mind wander. :-)

  • Thanks for the advice Caz! If I have the same trouble with w7 r2 I think I'll do something similar. Don't know how I got to the end, felt ill after and nearly fainted!! Might be time to take the pressure off and repeat a couple of runs :-)

  • Good luck. :-)
