My earlier post was all oooo and err about my worry for running the solid 25mins.
I set off to the gym with my positive mindset only to get there and find it closed early for a referb.
Old me would have got in the car and given up. This time I decided to run around the nearby park. My worry with this has always be security as I do evening runs and it gets dark around 9-10 when I'm out. Also I am terrible at keeping pace so use the treadmills kmph to keep me steady.
With all this in mine I rang the bf and did a paranoid "if I'm not back in 45mins I might be dead" he told me I'd be fine and wished me luck. ( and then said, if you do get attacked let's hope it is near the start of your run so you can sprint off!!!)
So I set off. Time zoomed by and I found it so much easier. I know I was running slower as the GPS tracker on my phone says so but I still managed 4.1km in the time which seems to be my standard distance for 35mins (including warmup times.)
The thing that stunned me the most was when I first started the C25k I went around the same park and running from one tree to the next was so hard - today I did 3 laps comfortably.
Buzzzzzing so much and ready to go again on Thursday
Thanks to people who commented earlier - it kept me going during the run thinking - if they say I can then I must be able to!!
