Firstly thanks everyone for the lovely comments on my first blog- all the positivity has really helped me keep up the enthusiasm for going out running in these early stages. I did the last run of week one today and for some reason struggled the most today. I don't know whether it was going out running before breakfast, or just a culmination of a week where I've done unprecedented exercise taking its toll, but on one run I really couldn't believe that Laura wasn't telling me I only had two more to go. Plus it was boiling out this morning- even at half 10. Still shouldn't complain after the eternal winter we've been having.
I managed to complete the run by slowing down the pace a bit and took the executive decision to include a brisk walk round Co-op to get some greek yoghurt for breakfast in the five minute cool-down, which was a nice treat. Going to start week 2 next week but I have a feeling I may have to switch back to week 1 again. I still can't imagine ever being able to run for 30 mins straight. But anyway, hope you're all well and enjoying this lovely weather.
Happy running and happy weekend.
