5 Day Running Challenge. Day 5 Feedback

Again I enjoyed this as it resets where I'm at with my running. I felt I had plateaud a bit with my running but the 5 Day running challenge always gives me a lift and I managed to knock nearly a minute off the time of run 1. Hoping to sign up for the Summer squad to continue to improve 😊🏃‍♀️

Finding Something Extra for the 5-Day Challenge

I found a new me, dug deep & pushed myself, hitting that self doubt out of my head & stubbornly ran on my own, not giving up & smashed Tuesday's time even though the last 1/4km was hard.

Non-Stop Learning as a New Club Member

I have learnt so much, not just this week but throughout my whole time with the club. I have learnt how important nutrition and injury prevention is, I still have aches and pains but I am learning how to deal with these, the foam roller is not always my friend but does do a great job!
