First run of week 3 went fine, not as hard as I expected although I did take it pretty slowly. Maybe I should have been more worried when a dog walker told me that his dog had been scared by gun shot, as I was on my way to the field, but I just thought that it was probably a bird scarer and saw nothing frightening fortunately. However, on my second week 3 run, I did nearly jump out of my special running trainers when I saw a snake by my foot. It wasn't that big, but I nearly stepped on it! Then I had a few extra days off running as it was my little girl's 2nd birthday and party. I felt rather guilty about the unauthorized rest days, but paid for it on week 3 run 3 with a lot more huffing and puffing. Think that I will do an extra Week 3 run to get my stamina up a little before week 4!
