Just this minute got back from first 'run'. Found it hard by middle session but kept thinking of all the posts telling me to start slowly. Burning sensation in airways became quite painful so next time I will take a bottle of water with me. I had already slowed for last 2 runs a few seconds before being told to walk again. The walks were more like strolls.
Really pleased I did it though. Took some getting out from cosy bed. Made the mistake of switching on as soon as I was outside and my first run ended up coming on the only uphill part! Will switch on when I get to railway next time.
Ran along old railway track, nice and level. Glorious sunshine, squirrels, rabbits, lambs - lovely. managed not to kick a tiny baby rabbit into oblivion when it dashed out only inches from my foot!
Going to ENJOY my shower now! Then lunch with my book club friends and feeling exhausted but good!
