After my previous run / shuffle which was the toughest I’d ever done, today a totally different person laced up his trainers and emerged through the front door.
I felt much more like my old self today for some reason, I can’t explain it, but I’m so grateful for it. I chose the NRC Breaking Through Barriers Run and set off at what felt like a running pace again, I chose my alternate route which has a steep hill at the beginning and even that didn’t feel too bad. The guided run ended and I felt I had more in the tank, so resumed the workout until I’d reached 7k, at what I later discovered was a pretty good pace. At the end of the run I encountered the dreaded hill again and this time walked up it until I’d reached its crest.
Then I had the crazy idea of doing another NRC Run, this time a 2k one just to get me home, which is what I did, and with This Is Me from The Greatest Showman playing in my ears, I completed it !
I’m showered and typing this feeling a bit more like my old self again.....in the words of Indielass00....Thank God For Running !
Positivity, Strength and Hope everyone!
