I've seen so many posts about the phantom 'bad run demons' and I really did get my share today! Legs and ankles grizzling and griping, back ache and general 'I'm just not in the mood for this' plagued me for the best part of the 30 minutes!
Anyway, how could I give up (and I did seriously consider it more than once) on my graduation run - I'd never live it down. So I soldiered on and consoled myself with the near sure knowledge that my next run is certain to fly. My theory that a bad run is (nearly) always followed by a good one continues to hold true, for me at least.
I've seen lots of graduations this week so big congratulations to all my fellow graduates and those doing their last few 30 minute runs. Thanks also to all those who continue to post here and provide inspiration and reassurance for the rest of us. C25K has been a great programme and I'm already looking forward to Parkrun number 2 on Saturday.
