Been a battle hasn't it lately? This morning I got myself up reasonably early and out at 6.30. Was very reluctant at first having felt so ghastly last time out. What a difference the weather makes. It was cloudy with the odd sprinkle and a strong cool wind. Coped wonderfully! Did all the running - no problem! And when Laura suggested upping the speed at the end I DID. Not hugely I might add - but I did manage to up the pace a little. Not sure if you could call it a high but I am feeling pleased with today's performance. I was beginning to think I could not do this running malarkey and wanted to give up!
So - to all you newbies out there - I take my hat off to you. It is very hard starting the plan when it is so hot. Don't let the heat put you off, just take it slow and steady and look forward to the cooler weather!
