I finally did it And here's what I learned:
The human body is incredibly adaptable.
You CAN run through the pain.
I’m tougher than I look (contrary to popular opinion).
Mastering the technique of breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth is really important (lest you get a gobful of flies).
Running in the rain is as fun (if not more) than running in the sunshine so is no excuse at all.
I have the appetite of a very active person so I had better keep going and stay busy to keep losing the pounds.
Brambles will always win.
If I can do it, anyone can!!!
Chuffed to bits:o) I haven't been very active in this forum but I have read it religiously every day and have found you all to be a real inspiration. Hearing all of your highs and lows has really helped me through the program and realise that I'm not alone with the battle to become a runner.
Thank you all.
My plan now is to do another week of 30 minute runs before moving on to either the speed and stamina podcasts or B210K. Anyone have any advice on any of these?
