Today I was up and out nice and early and it was still cool, no - cold! Had my best head on, calm, confident and optimistic. Slight incident with a man walking his 3 large dogs, two of which were the black and tan type (I think you call them Doberman) Anyway they were massive and when they started to surround me and follow me I froze, hands across my chest (as instructed previously by a dog walker) and I told him to get his dog back. 'It's alright, that one doesn't bite' (and the others do?) but he did come and get them back and away from me so I thanked him - nicely! Progress there on my part because they do terrify me!
Enough rant! So, I'd already measured my route on Google maps as 4.7 km but that includes the warm up/down walks so I must remeasure it for the actual running part.
And for the first time since I started this programme I can truthfully say that I ENJOYED the running! YAY! WEIGH HAY! I wish I could tell you in strong enough terms what a relief that is to me! And now I am home, showered and hair done and I'm feeling really chuffed with myself! I know I can see this through now! I am going to seek out a Parkrun for next weekend and hopefully graduate with a proper measured and timed 5K.
Happy running everyone!
