Well I've not blogged for a little while but have been keeping upto date with all your stories and words of encouragement!
Went away to Yorkshire again this weekend and managed 2 x 5 mile runs while I was camping. In fact I think it honestly made my holiday better getting up early and going out in the countryside was a nice change from the busy roads I normally run on. Also encouraged me not to drink too much alcohol and as a result felt so much better!
I've been managing to complete 3/4 runs a week since graduation back in march and have moved on to stepping stones still go back to Laura week 9 once a week, as running with my own music is harder than I thought. I have noticed tho after a really crappy day a work I really NEED to go out for that run to get those negative feelings. My best runs are always on a Friday night as I leave that week behind and know it will improve my mood for the weekend.
I am still finding each run as tough as the last, the gremlins are always there but I just find it easier to ignore them these days. Am really finding varying my runs with stepping stones is helping keep me motivated.
I am considering my first park run and have been practicing running on different terrains to prepare me, but I've not had the courage to sign up for 1 just yet.
I just cannot believe how much I have achieved in a few short months and how motivated I have been and how grumpy I get if I can't manage to get out for my planned runs. I have really no one to tell all about my running adventures as I feel I bore my none running friends so you guys are such an inspiration to me. I am so glad I get the daily updates via email it gives me the little reminder I need.
So thank you everyone for blogging and keeping me on track when you didn't even know you we're doing so. Have a fabulous weekend everyone and enjoy your runs and the lovely weather we've been promised. Oh and I managed 3.7miles in 40mins tonight so I'm extra happy tonight!
