Week 2 Run 1

I really enjoyed my run this morning. I was a bit worried about it as I had struggled on my last run of week 1, so I decided to take it slow. The first 15 minutes passed at a slow pace, looping down roads in order to make my route longer and enjoying the new music. The second 15 minutes also zoomed by pretty easily. I went into the last 15 knowing I was going to finish but with a vague sinking feeling as 15 minutes still seemed so long and I was getting puffed. But I got my second wind and at times felt really strong and good. It felt as if I was really running and it felt good. I finished on a high, the second half of the run was way faster than the first half and I was very exhilarated. Runs like today's make it all worth while. But I'll bet the next two will be a struggle!
