Week1, Run 2


I got out there again today :-) I completed the second run of week one.

I had honestly forgotten what it was like to run on tired legs. I also met a few of my long lost friends the gremlins this morning. As soon as I finished the warm up walk I felt the need to go to the loo (!) I'm sure that its all psychological because once I stopped thinking about it, the need disappeared :-)

My legs felt quiet tight after my first run this week (considering I haven't run for 5 months, I'm not surprised) which bought it own mental challenge but I kicked any thought of stopping to one side.

I'm planning my next run on Friday morning. I have spa day on Friday also but I will get out early as usual and let my spa day be my reward for restarting this journey and completing the first week (again)

Well done for getting out there again. I am in the same position having graduated in december but haven't run since March. Did my first run this morning and it did feel harder than I thought it would. Good luck with yr next run - keep posting.
