So after deciding to start running during the hottest weather of the year, and constantly having to cake myself in sun cream, I've completed week 1. I'm feeling very proud of myself for committing to exercise for the first time in about a year. I'm not entirely unfit, but I'm not entirely fit either so this has been a nice way to ease into running. I went for a 6 mile cycle on Sunday so that put paid to starting week 2 on Monday, so it looks like Wednesday is the day to get going again.
I find the podcasts shockingly awful, which I think is what helps me keep going. The motivational phrases make me laugh and nearer the end I've been so annoyed by the music that I've not even realised when I'm running and when I'm not. I can't wait to be able to run for 30 minutes and look like a proper runner (rather than a puffed out one with poor technique!). Thanks to Laura for keeping me going
