Usually update blogs at the end of a run week, but since week 4 steps the program up a little I thought I'd report how we got on with the first run.
What a beautiful day, sunny, hot and ..... oh crickey that's gonna make it harder to run and we have to run longer today! Well long story short I really enjoyed it, apart from the part when we were overtaken by a real runner, but, he didn't exactly leave us for dust as he may have been a little irked about when he looked back. First three and five mins went swimmingly then I noticed my daughter falling far behind and walking when she should have been running. Deciding it might not do much for her confidence being left in her dad's wake i kept running back to her and encouraging. she had paused the podcast when she needed to walk and finished it fully, but it seems her feet had gone numb and her back was hurting a little thus having to stop running. She had a discectomy just over a year ago so I think a visit to the docs is in order just to get checked over. very proud of her though, she carried on and finished regardless.
My own session went really well. felt a stitch coming on at one point and spookily Laura chimes in with her tip for easing them. The ubiquitous Laura eh?
Looking forward to run 2 on Sunday, hoping daughter can join in without foot trouble. Have a sunny, runny, fun weekend everyone
