Had a lovely run this evening. Definitely have made the right decision to ditch the Couch to 5K+ for now and just stick to 30 minute runs. I decided to try and go a bit faster this evening - usually I only cover 3.7K in 30 minutes which I know is pitiful compared to a lot of people on here, but tonight I covered 4.1K (which is still pitiful I know!) but it is an improvement so it's perked me up. Shower, change and a glass of red I think
Just edited to add this bit as I forgot on my original post, think my brain got waylaid with the thought of the wine. What I kept in my mind as I ran today was all the posts that I've read from various people over the last few days when I've been feeling a bit demoralised with my running - everyone is so determined. I kept remembering posts from people who have aching legs on weeks 1 and 2, people who have joint problems and sciatica, others who are building up to 10K or half marathons - and all the support and encouragement from everyone too, it really spurred me on. A big thanks to all of you out there.
